Minot man accused of photographing nude women headed for trial

MINOT, N.D. – A Minot man accused of photographing nude women and sharing the images online will stand trial.

Investigators say that 34-year-old Michael Nix exchanged photos of at least four women with people over Facebook and other websites between May 2015 and August 2016, and photographed one woman while she was asleep.

Nix will stand trial on the three A-misdemeanor charges Dec. 26.

Nix’s attorney called for a 12-person jury for the case.

He faces up to a year in prison on each charge if convicted.
