Trail Delayed Until Spring For Eldon Man Facing Federal Child Pornography Charges

An Eldon man and registered sex offender who is facing federal charges related to child pornography will now go to trial in March. Last month a three count indictment was handed down by a federal grand jury against Troy Wayne Davis. Davis was originally scheduled to face a federal jury at the end of October. Last week his lawyers requested the trial be pushed back until March so they could continue their investigation and prepare for a possible plea deal. Davis was arrested after a search of his social media accounts showed several graphic images of children under the age of 12. The indictment alleges the transportation, receipt and possession of child pornography. A federal judge has already ruled that Davis, in custody since his arrest, will remain behind bars in a Polk County Jail as he awaits trial. His trial date is now set for March 2nd.
