Motion Filed For New Trial Or Dismissal In Lindaman Case

Charles City, Iowa – Douglas Lindaman filed a motion in Floyd County District Court seeking a fourth trial or dismissal of charges. Lindaman’s motion raises a number of issues.  

He argues the court should require physical examination of the alleged victim’s genitals.  The second issue the motion says the court’s instruction to the jury didn’t make it clear how non-sexual legitimate contact should be treated. Lastly, he raises the issue of the timing when the charges were filed in 2015; 10 days before a school board election, one in which he was a candidate for.

The Floyd County Attorney’s office has no comment.  Lindaman’s sentencing will be Friday, June 22nd at 9 am.
