Federal jury trial moved for next year in sexual exploitation case

The federal trial for a Minot man accused of distributing pictures of minors on the internet has been moved.

The indictment says 20-year-old Carl Dean is accused distributing and receiving images of a minor between December 2016 and March of this year.

Documents say authorities have taken several of Dean’s devices in for evidence including phones and hard drives.

Dean’s trial was moved to Jan. 15 in Bismarck.
