Pattonsburg Man in Daviess County Court Today on Sex Crime Pair

A Pattonsburg man will appear in Daviess County Court today on two sex crime charges.

Court documents say Clinton Jay Hardin faces felony charges of first-degree statutory rape or attempted statutory rape of a person less than 14 years of age and felony third-degree child molestation of a child less than 14 years of age.

Records list both charges from April 2023.

A probable cause statement accuses Hardin of having sexual intercourse with a 13 and 14-year-old multiple times in the Pattonsburg area.

The court denied Hardin’s bond.

He will appear for an arraignment this afternoon.
