On Sunday, April 29, 2018, at 8:50 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Benjamin Halverson (35), of Cylinder, on a valid Palo Alto County warrant for assault with intent to inflict serious injury, which is an aggravated misdemeanor. Bond was set in the amount of $6,500.00 cash only. Halverson was transported, without incident, to the Palo Alto County Jail. Halverson was unable to post bond and was subsequently booked into the Palo Alto County Jail to await his initial appearance before a magistrate.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
