By The Staff

Editor’s note: The News-Herald reports all misdemeanors, felonies and small claims judgments in district court, except for juvenile court proceedings, which are confidential; however, traffic offenses by juveniles are reported because they are public record. All civil suits in circuit court are reported. Claims made in a lawsuit present only one side of a case. Charges or citations reported to the News-Herald do not imply guilt. That is determined by the court. Information on this page is public record. Names will not be withheld by request.
