CLEAR LAKE – A Clear Lake man is in jail on an incest charge.

Under Iowa law, a person, except a child, who performs a sex act with another whom the person knows to be related to the person, either legitimately or illegitimately, as an ancestor, descendant, brother or sister of the whole or half blood, aunt, uncle, niece, or nephew, commits incest. Incest is a class “D” felony.
Russ awaits a court date on November 6 as he is held on bond in the jail.
