County Attorney

As part of an ongoing investigation led by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) into unlawful sports wagering activities, Harry Reginald Bracy II, Arland Richard Bruce IV, Jack Thomas Johnson, Owen O’Brien have been formally charged with Tampering With Records, a violation of Iowa code 715A.5.

Tampering with Records is an aggravated misdemeanor, carrying potential penalties ranging from a deferred judgment to a maximum sentence of up to two years in prison and a fine ranging from $855 to $8540.

"These charges stem from an extensive investigation by the DCI," said Johnson County Attorney Rachel Zimmermann Smith. "The investigation is ongoing, and we are committed to ensuring a thorough and fair process."

It is important to note that a criminal charge is merely an accusation, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
