An Atlantic man accused of holding a female victim against her will is scheduled to go to trial in July. According to Audubon County District Court records, 29-year-old Joseph Dean White is charged with one count of false imprisonment, a serious misdemeanor. The Audubon County Sheriff’s Office reports that White and the victim were involved in an argument on May 9 in Exira and he physically prevented her from leaving the situation. White was then arrested a few days later, on May 12, after being found intoxicated in the Exira City Park. He was charged with third-offense public intoxication, an aggravated misdemeanor, in that incident. White entered not guilty pleas to both charges and is scheduled to appear for a pretrial hearing on July 1 at the Audubon County Courthouse. He has waived his right to a speedy trial and his case is slated to be heard by a jury on July 16. If found guilty of the charges, he faces a maximum penalty of two years in prison and more than $8,000 in fines.
