According to Mandy Tindall, the mother of victim, “he sent another photo actually 3 in a row that were sexually explicit so I was able to take a picture of those photos with my phone. I called her dad back and he immediately called FDLE because her dad is the undersheriff of Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office and the person who sent the photos, Dale Douglas, his uncle is Bobby Schultz so they wanted to ensure that the case was handled fairly.”

Douglas is being held in the Alachua County Jail after turning himself in.
