Bismarck man accused of sexting an undercover officer posing as a minor

BISMARCK, N.D. - A Bismarck man is accused of sexting an undercover officer he thought was a minor.

Twenty-two-year-old Tyler Richter is accused of sending a message to the fake account offering to pay for the 15-year-old to get her nails done because he had a fetish.

The Bismarck detective says Richter described what he was into and what he would do to the minor. Police say Richter also sent a photo of his genitals through Snapchat.

Richter was arrested on Friday. He told police he had a sex addiction and had communicated with several minors online including the undercover account.

He’s charged with luring minors by computer and attempted promotion of obscenity to minors.

A judge set his bond at $1,500 in cash and no contact with minors.
