Shayne M. Kaster

On Friday, May 2, a Marion County jury deliberated for approximately 90 minutes before returning a verdict of guilty in the State of Iowa v. Shayne Kaster. Marion County Attorney Ed Bull tells KNIA KRLS News that Kaster was found guilty of domestic abuse assault causing a bodily injury. Bull says this case was prosecuted by Assistant County Attorney Nicole Olson. Bull said, “I wish to sincerely thank Ms. Olson for all her hard work on this case. Domestic Abuse cases are extremely difficult cases to prosecute. I am so pleased to have such a dedicated prosecutor working in my office. I am hopeful that my office’s continued willingness to try domestic cases will deter others from committing this offense. Sentencing in this matter is set for July 11, 2014. The Marion County Attorney’s Office would like to thank the citizens of Marion County for their time while serving as jurors.”
