On Thursday, December 7th around 5:50 p.m. Marshall County Deputy Geiger stopped a black Chevrolet truck for speeding on U.S. 30 at S.R. 331.

The county officer found that the driver, 49-year-old Roberto Alcala of South Bend had a license that was suspended with a prior conviction. Mr. Alcala was arrested and charged for that offense. He was taken to the Marshall County Jail for processing. He was given a court date and a cash bond of $500.

Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
