Iowa sex offender loses election, pleads not guilty

Posted: Updated:

CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) -- A convicted sex offender has lost the election for a Charles City school board seat and has pleaded not guilty to a sex abuse charge filed last month.
   
Doug Lindaman was charged with performing a sex act in 2011 on a 17-year-old boy without the boy's consent. The 59-year-old pleaded not guilty on Tuesday, and his trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 20 in Floyd County District Court.
   
Preliminary figures from Floyd County say Lindaman received a little over 14 percent of the votes cast in Tuesday's election. He has said the new sex abuse charge was politically motivated.
   
Lindaman was convicted in 1988 on two counts of lascivious acts with minors. He's not listed on Iowa Sex Abuse Registry, because his crimes occurred before the registry was created.
