Monday at the Jasper County Courthouse.  Court service day in district court.  One arraignment, a motion heard on the record to exclude testimony, a probation revocation hearing, and a couple of matters heard in chambers Judge Hagen presiding.  No activity in Associate District Court with Judge Mott--at least this morning.  Can't speak to the afternoon.  Monday is criminal day in district court--mostly arraignments,  pretrial conferences, motions that take little time, guilty pleas and sentencings.  Doesn't appear that there was any decent crime over the Thanksgiving break--just the usual:  driving under suspension, owi, public intox, etc.  Nothing very interesting.
