An arrest warrant has been issued for former Kingsley Police Chief Ken Swanson for failure to appear in Plymouth County District Court.
Swanson was to appear for probation revocation Monday afternoon; but, according to an order for a warrant signed by Judge Robert C. Clem, Swanson failed to appear.
A warrant has been issued and bail set at $10,000.
Swanson was sentenced in May 2001 through a plea agreement on five counts of supplying alcohol to a person under legal age, a serious misdemeanor.
The sentence included 14 days in the O'Brien County jail, two years probation, a $500 fine, court costs and a statutory surcharge. The amount totaled $3,280, according to Sioux County Attorney Mark Schouten, who served as special prosecutor for Plymouth County. The charges stem from incidents that occurred in Kingsley in September, 2000.
