CHARLES CITY – A former Mason City woman who stole a car in Mason City and was arrested several times in Charles City last year is back in jail.

Lacey Prohaska, age 30, is now in the county jail, accused for a second time of violating her probation in a case where she pled guilty to taking someone’s car without they consent. In June of 2015, Prohaska was charged with stealing a car in Mason City. She pled guilty in July to operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent and was ordered to serve two days in jail (365 day sentence with all but 2 days suspended) and to pay $1,955.11 in fines and court fees. That balance has now ballooned to $2,659.52 and records show she has failed to make a payment. At this time, she is awaiting bed space in Beje Clark halfway house. She awaits a probation revocation hearing on February 29 and could face a longer jail term from the suspended sentence.

Prohaska was arrested on July 28 in Charles City – her third arrest in that community in 2015. At nearly 1:30 AM that morning, police in Charles City responded to a report of a woman who was “knocking doors”. After an investigation, officers located and arrested Prohaska. She was charged with disorderly conduct and taken to jail. She pled guilt in August and was sent to jail for 2 days and ordered to pay $147.00 in fines and court fees; records show she has failed to make a payment. She also pled guilty to trespassing and interference with official acts in the other two incidents and was ordered to pay $100.00 and $521.88, respectively, in those cases and has yet to make a payment.

Prohaska also pled guilty on August 3 in Mitchell county to interference with official acts. She was ordered to pay $397.50 in fines and court fees. That balance has ballooned to $571.88 and she has failed to make a payment, records show.

    Isn’t it wonderful the way fines can accumulate large interest fees but civil debts cannot, even when the debtor has signed a debt instrument for 18% finance charge. The court will reduce that to about 2%. Burns my butt.
