THEFT CONVICTION: Case No Longer In The Dark

The case surrounding a Pella theft is no longer in the dark after the jury reached a verdict not before the power was restored.

Pella resident, John Kingma was of theft in the first degree by a Marion County Jury at around 2 p.m. after a two-and-a-half hour deliberation. Part of the case was overseen in the dark due to a power failure.

Kingma stole over $10,000 from a local business in Pella, over a number of years. 

Sentencing is scheduled for March 22nd. 

“I wish to thank Ms. Kragnes and Officer Matt Huston of the Pella Police Department for their service in this case," Marion County Attorney Ed Bull is reported saying in the Pella Chronicle, "I also wish to thank the jury for their service over the past two days, which included a duration of time in which testimony was taken in the dark, due to the power outage in Knoxville.  Without jurors who are willing to serve, even during difficult conditions, our justice system would not work."
