A trial for 65-year-old Jim Parks of Alliance, who was facing seven felony counts of possession of child pornography, will not be held in Alliance.
The local charges have been dismissed due to federal charges being filed on February 21.
The U.S. federal indictment states that Parks is charged with receipt and distribution of child pornography. The alleged crimes occurred between June 9 and August 8, 2013.
Parks’ trial in Box Butte County District Court was to have been held on April 28 and 29.
