Subsequently, Cassatt helped establish the First National Bank of Pella and the Marion County National Bank in Knoxville. From 1884 to 1892, Casatt served in the Iowa Senate from District 15 as a Democrat. Following his two terms as state senator, Cassatt became dependent on alcohol and morphine, and lost nearly $250,000 investing in wheat on the Chicago Board of Trade. Smaller transactions were processed in Des Moines. The First National Bank of Pella also lost money. Arraigned on charges of embezzlement, Cassatt attempted suicide on June 3, 1895, by cutting his throat and pouring poison into the resulting wounds. He was found guilty of violating banking laws. On July 15, 1895, Cassatt was sentenced to nine years imprisonment by John Simson Woolson, of which he served a portion in Anamosa, Iowa, before he was pardoned by President William McKinley in 1900. In later life, Cassatt moved to Albert Lea, Minnesota, where he died on June 26, 1907, from a stomach issue. He was buried in Pella's Oak Wood (or Oakland) Cemetery. (en)
