• Jason A. Schutty, 42, of Newton was charged with second-offense domestic abuse assault causing bodily injury after police were called to 2873 Highway F48 W. to investigate a previous incident that occurred around 5 a.m. Sunday. Officers arrived at the location at 11:05 a.m. Monday. Schutty was living with his mother and allegedly pushed her down and punched her in the face. According to police records, he was intoxicated. Officers observed bruises on his mother. She requested a no-contact order. He was taken to the Jasper County Jail.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. It is the policy of the Newton Daily News to release the names of individuals charged with a crime who are 16 and older.
