On Sunday, November 26th, 2017, at 3:16 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Crystal Sheriff (31), of Primghar, on a valid O’Brien County warrant for contempt of court. The warrant stems from an original charge of possession of a controlled substance, which is a serious misdemeanor. Bond for the warrant was set in the amount of $1,850.00 cash only. Sheriff was transported to O’Brien County and turned over to the O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
