Charles City man accused of sexual abuse gets new trial date

Charles City, Iowa – Douglas Lindaman was found guilty of sexually abusing a 17-year-old boy back in 2016, but now there is a new trial date set for this case.

Lindaman was sentenced to ten years in prison at the time but now the Iowa Supreme Court has reversed the original decision.

The 61-year-old man represented himself in 2016 without knowingly waving his right to an attorney. Off of this information, the Supreme Court determined that a new trial was needed.

Lindaman will stand trial on August 1st, at 9 am on a third-degree sexual abuse charge in the Floyd County District Court.
