Sentence delayed for ex-Hartsville deputy marshall

Sentencing for a former Hartsville deputy marshal who admits text-messaging sexually explicit material to a 12-year- old girl has been postponed until next month.

The hearing for Lyn A. Nunemaker, 52, which was scheduled for Thursday, has been reset for 10:30 a.m. June 9 in Bartholomew Circuit Court.

Nunemaker plead guilty April 4 to felony attempted dissemination of material harmful to minors as a Level 6 felony. Judge Stephen Heimann outlined a number of possible conditions, but it won’t be known until next month whether the judge will agree with a plea bargain made in the case.

Nunemaker was arrested July 17 after detectives found sexually explicit photos and text messages that included graphic descriptions of sexual activity the sender wished to engage in with the girl. Court records state he also asked her to send him sexually explicit photos.

Investigators also wrote that Nunemaker, who remains under an order to have no contact with the victim, admitted he was aware of her age.
