CLINTON — A Camanche man is accused of violating the terms of his parole on four occasions from Aug. 31 to Dec. 18.

The parole rule supervision conduct states Downs was to maintain contact with his supervising officer as directed and shall not lie to, mislead or misinform his supervising officer either by a statement or omitting information.
The report on Dec. 18 alleges violation of the rule legal conduct. The report states on Dec. 15 Downs was arrested by the LeClaire Police Department for unlawful possession of a prescription drug and three counts of driving under suspension. Downs appeared in Scott County District Court on Dec. 16 for his initial appearance. It was found there was probably cause to believe Downs committed the crimes.
