Kelso Arraigned for Vehicle Theft

Michael Kelso was arraigned Monday morning in Jefferson County Court on a charge of motor vehicle theft, a class III felony that is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and/or a $25,000 fine.

Kelso appeared via video teleconference from the Jefferson County Jail and asked Judge Patrick McArdle for a court-appointed defense attorney. During testimony Kelso said he was not working at this time and is on workers comp right now as he lost all of his toes recently while working at the Fairbury Cemetery.

McArdle appointed the Jefferson County Public Defenders to represent him and then looked at his bond.

Kelso was being held in the county jail without bond and McArdle established Kelsos bond at $250,000, 10-percent cash as he is considered a habitual criminal due to numerous drug-related convictions in California.

Kelso is scheduled to appear again in county court on Sept. 25.
