Court Dismisses Man’s Trial for Sex Crimes

The trial of a Paducah man charged with sex offenses ended abruptly on Monday. David Tindell was in McCracken Circuit Court, facing charges of use of electronic communications to procure a minor for sex, and possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. The charges stem from an arrest in September 2019, when police said they found child porn after investigating conversations on social media between Tindell and a child. Officials say  the victim in the alleged crime was not physically or emotionally able to testify at the trial, so Judge Tim Kaltenbach issued a directed verdict, dismissing the case.
