Court orders fitness exam for Minard

Donald R. Minard, 40,
of Pana, made his first appearance in Christian County Court this morning before Resident Judge Brad Paisley. Minard is charged with sexual exploitation of a child under age 13 and resisting a peace officer.

An oral motion for bond reduction was denied by Judge Paisley. His bond remains at $50,000.

Public Defender Tiffany Senger asked the Judge to order a fitness hearing for Minard. The request was granted and the defendant will undergo psychiatric evaluation to determine if he is mentally fit to stand trial.

A report is expected to be introduced into court on Feb. 14, 2022.
