MASON CITY – A woman now living in Marble Rock who while previously living in Mason City had punished her child by leaving it in a running clothes dryer – and was convicted of the crime and received probation – was arrested for assault and could have her probation revoked.
Mallory Ann Hakes, 27, turned herself in to the Cerro Gordo County Jail last Saturday, January 19th on an arrest warrant after she had been charged by Mason City police in December with assault causing bodily injury, a serious misdemeanor.
Hakes had received 1 year of probation, a suspended fine of $625 and a 1 year jail term suspended by Judge Gregg Rosenbladt for the child endangerment charge, stemming from the December 10th, 2011 incident. Investigators determined that Hakes’ 22-month-old baby boy had crawled into the clothes dryer located in the basement of their residence to hide. When Hakes found the boy in the dryer, she shut the door and turned the dryer on for a period no longer than a few seconds as a form of punishment for the child. The child was uninjured in the incident.
The latest assault charge filed by Mason City police against Hakes was filed on December 17th after an incident the previous evening which took place at Tailgaters Bar. Hakes is accused of assaulting a 32 year-old Mason City woman there.
Hakes posted $1,000 bond on January 22nd and left the jail. She faces a hearing on February 15th, 2013.
