Warrant Arrest

On 8-9-21 the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Karmon Kristy Jansen (63) of Somers Iowa, on a valid Palo Alto County Arrest Warrant for Failure to Appear for a Pretrial Conference on an original 3rd Offense Possession of a Controlled Substance charge. Following her arrest, Jansen was unable to post the $5000.00 cash or surety bond and was placed in jail to await her initial appearance before a judge.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
