DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A man set to appear in court on a sex charge was a no show Tuesday.

An arrest warrant for failure to appear is now issued for James Malott, 20.  He is under indictment by a Montgomery County grand jury for a felony count of pandering sexual oriented material involving a minor.

Prosecutors say the charge was prompted by a nude selfie that Malott’s 17-year-old girlfriend sent to him. She is under the age of consent which is 18.

He was set for arraignment Tuesday, but failed to appear before the judge. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
