Facebook solicitation case sent to grand jury

Published 11:01 am Thursday, April 13, 2017

The bond was lowered for a Lexington man accused of trying to meet a female juvenile for sex in Clark County in March.

Terry Duncan, 63, was charged with use of a minor for a sexual performance and prohibited use of electronic communications to procure a minor or police officer for sex after police became involved in the situation.

According to court documents, Duncan reportedly knew the girl, now 17, for about five years and communicated with her through social media. After Winchester Police received a complaint, they took over the communications with Duncan and posed as the girl. Duncan set up a meeting at a truck stop of Interstate 64 in Clark County with the girl. When he showed up at the appointed time, he was arrested instead.

In an interview with police, he reportedly admitted to requesting a nude photo of the girl and setting up the meet.

Wednesday, Duncan and his attorney decided to waive the case to the Clark County grand jury for further consideration. The judge amended his bond to 10 percent of $25,000. If Duncan is released, he would not be subject to house arrest with no computer or cell phone access, and no contact with the alleged victim.
