A woman has been put on probation after pleading guilty to two separate charges. The Iowa resident was charged with credit card fraud and first-degree theft. She was accused of stealing $30,000 from her employer, which the judge ordered her to pay back. The judge sentenced the 33-year-old to four years probation. She was the office manager of a trucking company.
It seems much of rural Iowa is facing an increase in violent crimes. These felony crimes in are being pinned on the increase of not only Iowa residents facing mental health issues, but also on the burgeoning drug problem, especially the use of crystal meth. Headlines in local papers screaming rape, arson and murder are becoming much more prevalent.
