Warrant Arrest

On 07-24-16 at approximately 4:22 pm, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jessica Joy Altenburg of Sibley, Ia on a valid Palo Alto County arrest warrant. The original charge was for contempt of court for failure to pay court fines and for violation of probation. Altenburg was unable to post the $6250 cash or surety bond and was transported without incident from the Clay / Palo Alto County line to the Palo Alto County Jail and was placed in jail to await her appearance before the magistrate.

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