He was indicted on seven pandering obscenity charges in September 2017.

Findley was accused of filming obscene images of a minor between November 2015 and August 2016, as well as promoting the sale or spreading of obscene material in August 2016.

Dayton Public Schools placed him on leave during the 2016-17 school year after a detective was assigned to Findley’s case.

He resigned July 9, 2017.
