Bell Sentenced

A Spencer man has been sentenced for criminal mischief in Palo Alto County District Court.

Last August, 36-year-old Nathan Bell was taken into custody for contempt of court on an original charge of failure to pay fines for a charge of open container, along with third-degree criminal mischief, and domestic abuse causing bodily injury.

Bell pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal mischief, and was sentenced to 30 days in jail. He was ordered to pay 950-dollars restitution and 490-dollars in court costs and surcharges. A 625-dollar fine was suspended.
