Last Updated: Tuesday, January 20, 2015

On December 31, 2014 the DCSO received a call from Joyce Jaquith (83).  She seemed to be very confused and was not making sense.  The DCSO then responded to the residence in the 2600 block of Highway 9/71.  Upon further investigation it was determined that Joyce’s son, Frank Jaquith (53), neglected to provide adequate medical attention for his mother.

Frank was charged with Neglect of a Dependent Person, a Class C Felony, and is currently being held on a $10,000 bond.

The DCSO was assisted by Dickinson County Emergency Management, Lakes Regional Ambulance, and Iowa DHS.

All persons are innocent until proven guilty.
