 • Larson pleads guilty in Story County incident.

 A Webster City man has pleaded guilty to the charges filed in Story County District Court in Nevada after an incident last December near McCallsburg. 50 year old Ted Edward Larson made his court appearance Monday and was sentenced on charges of Serious Assault which is a serious misdemeanor and Second Degree Criminal Mischief which is a Class D Felony. Larson made an oral motion for reconsideration of the sentence with 14 days of his taking in to custody. The State did not resist the reconsideration and therefore the defendant's sentence will be reconsidered on October 20th at 8:30 a.m. in Story County District Court. The appeal bond is fixed in the amount of $2,500 on the charge of Serious Assault and $7,500  for Second Degree Criminal Mischief. The court sentenced Larson to one year in the Story County Jail on the Serious Assault charge but will be given credit for any time previously served. Larson would pay a fine of $315 plus the statutory surcharge of 35 percent and court costs. On the Second Degree Criminal Mischief charge, Larson is committed to the custody of the Director of the Iowa Department of Corrections for a term not to exceed five years. He would be given credit against that sentence for any time previously spent in custody because of his inability to furnish bail. Larson would be delivered to the Iowa Medical and Classification Center in Oakdale. Larson would pay a fine of $750 plus a surcharge of 35 percent, the $125 law enforcement initiative surcharge and court costs. The periods of confinement on both charges will be served concurrently.Larson was ordered to make victim restitution payments plus prohibited from having any contact with Lyndal Olson and his family members for the next five years. The Department of Corrections will prepare and file a presentence investigation report on Larson. The sentence will be reconsidered on October 20 as Larson made an oral motion to reconsider his sentence at the time of his guilty plea and sentencing. Larson and Terry Nessa were accused after they broke into the rural McCallsburg residence of Lyndal Olson on December 13,2014. Olson was assaulted in the incident.
