Clymer appointed judge in Barnard case

Staff report

McCracken Circuit Judge Craig Clymer has been appointed as a special judge in the case involving former Marshall County High School football coach Ron Barnard.  

According to the Marshall Circuit Clerk's Office, Clymer was appointed Thursday after Marshall Circuit Judge Dennis Foust recused himself earlier in the month.  Foust's recusal was anticipated due to his involvement with Marshall County athletics.

Barnard was arraigned Aug. 4 on felony charges involving one count of solicitation of the use of a minor in a sexual performance; one count of use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited activities; and one count of first-degree sexual abuse. He was arraigned on one count of distribution of obscene matter to minors, which is a misdemeanor.  

Barnard's charges arose after the Marshall County Sheriff's Department obtained sexually explicit messages, photos and recordings allegedly involving Barnard and a 15-year-old girl from Marshall County High School.

According to the Marshall Circuit Clerk's Office, Barnard's next court date is Sept. 5.
