Man accused of asking for nude pic from minorFARGO – A 21-year-old Wheatland man is accused of asking a 15-year-old girl to send him nude pictures of her via text message last September.
Jacob Nichols Mogen, 21, was charged Wednesday in Cass County District Court with promoting a sexual performance by a minor.
The alleged victim told authorities Mogen asked her to touch herself in a photo and send it to him, which she did, according to a report by the Cass County Sheriff’s Office. Mogen was previously acquainted with the girl.
The sheriff’s office and North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation executed a search warrant at Mogen’s residence in Wheatland on Sept. 24, seizing his cellphone, three laptop computers and an Xbox 360.
If convicted of the Class C felony, Mogen faces up to five years in prison.
