PRIMGHAR, Iowa -- A judge has found a Paullina, Iowa, man not guilty of having sexual contact with a child.
In a ruling filed Monday in O'Brien County District Court, Senior Judge John Ackerman ruled that Richard Buckley was not guilty of three counts of second-degree sexual abuse.
Ackerman heard evidence during a three-day trial last month. Buckley, 35, had been accused of having sexual contact with a child who was under age 12 on more than one occasion from Dec. 28, 2015, through Feb. 9, 2017. Buckley denied the allegations.
