Snapchat pornography case headed for trial in Minot

MINOT, N.D. – A Minot man accused of sending inappropriate images over Snapchat to a child last June will stand trial in January.

Prosecutors have charged 24-year-old with two counts of promoting obscenity to minors.

Investigators with Ward County say they received a complaint from a parent in October of multiple people sending pornographic images and videos to a child over the social media app.

Investigators identified Jesz as a suspect and later charged him.

Jesz will stand trial Jan. 15 in Minot. The charges are C-felonies which carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
