Charles City, Iowa – The eight-woman, four-man jury trial for 60-year-old Douglas Lindaman of Charles City continued Thursday as the victim testified to what exactly happened on May 10, 2011.

In an emotional testimony, the victim described what happened to him during the duration of working for Lindaman.

The jurors were asked to leave several times during the morning session while Judge Gregg Rosenbladt conferred with Floyd County attorney Rachel Ginby, and Doug Lindaman, who is representing himself in the trial.

Miranda Kracke, who performs interviews for the Allen Child Protection Center in Waterloo, also took the stand during the morning session. She spoke about how perpetrators will get the victim to trust them by breaking down barriers, gaining trust and access to spend more one-on-one time with them.

The trial continued into Thursday afternoon.
