Trial date set for parking attendant accused of raping teen at COTA

Paul Tincher Sept 5

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A parking attendant accused of raping a teenager searching for her car after a concert at Circuit of the Americas now knows when he will face a judge and jury in court.

Paul Tincher, 38, is scheduled to go to trial Feb. 25. On Wednesday, a judge denied his request for a personal bond.

Tincher is accused of assaulting a 17-year-old girl who asked for his help as she was leaving a JMBLYA music festival May 5. JMBLYA and COTA both said they are not involved with hiring or managing parking attendants. The parking management company, Transportation Management Services, had hired a local staffing company which background checked all its employees, including Tincher.

Tincher faces a sexual assault charge in this case. He has a long criminal history and was arrested several times for assault since 2001 and pleaded guilty to three assault charges, including one involving a family member.
