CHARLES CITY – A Floyd county woman is accused of criminal mischief in Charles City and is slated to stand trial.

Records show Leslie Leeann Weber is accused of a violation of Iowa code 716.5, which is criminal mischief in the third degree. The cost of replacing, repairing, or restoring property that is damaged, defaced, altered, or destroyed exceeds five hundred dollars, but does not exceed one thousand dollars. The charge was brought after an incident in Charles City on May 11, 2018. The Charles City police department did not respond to questions from NIT about the alleged incident. Their own records show, however, that on the afternoon of May 11, 2018, around 3:06 PM, officers did respond to a report of criminal mischief in the 1400 block of North Grand Avenue after a vehicle was damaged – but there is no confirmation that that incident is connected to this alleged crime.

Weber, who is currently the Floyd County Emergency Management Director, originally pled not guilty in July of 2018, and was due for jury trial on August 16, 2018. However, numerous continuances were requested by Weber’s attorney, and an evidence suppression motion was also requested – but was ultimately denied, court records show. She is scheduled for a trial on May 16.  A pre-trial conference is scheduled for May 7.

According to a story in the Charles City Press about Weber, “Whenever there is a person in need, she is there to lend a helping hand.”
