Dodge County attorney appears in court as defendant; problem emerges in latest case | Crime & Courts



Glass

Glass turned to his attorney, Clarence Mock.

“We’re going to deny today, right?” he said. Mock indicated that there was glass. And Wester set Glass’s bail at 10% of $ 3,500 – meaning Glass has to pay $ 350 to get out of jail. Wester urged Glass to ensure that all alcohol detection devices are installed by Tuesday night when he gets out.

Two questions were not dealt with at the hearing:

1. Will Glass be charged with a DUI in the Thursday incident that sparked parole allegations? Authorities claim he drove drunk to the home of estranged wife Katie Glass to pick up his children and then drove back to his parents’ house without the children after Katie Glass called 911.

Mock told The World-Herald that Fremont police officers did not perform a more detailed breath test on Oliver Glass or order blood from him.

The only blood alcohol test Glass received was what was called a preliminary breath test. However, preliminary breath tests are not considered reliable enough to be acceptable in court. Follow-up tests are therefore required.

2. Will Oliver Glass try to remain a prosecutor? Glass was appointed in 2011 and elected in 2014 and re-elected in 2018.
