A St. Paul man allegedly posted photographs of his nude ex-girlfriend online, according to charges filed recently in Ramsey County District Court.
Dylan Richard Henry Bendix, 19, posted six photos to the photo-sharing website, Flickr.com, last August, the complaint said. Bendix is charged with one count of criminal defamation, a gross misdemeanor.
According to the complaint: Bendix’s ex-girlfriend sent him the pictures in late 2011 when she was 17. The two started dating in the summer of 2010, broke up a year later and were on-again, off-again until December 2011.
Bendix threatened to post the photos on the Internet during one of the breakups, and the girl told him to delete them. The girl’s new boyfriend discovered the photos online in December 2012 when he searched the girl’s name, the complaint said.
The photos had been viewed as many as 397 times. Police traced the photos to an Internet provider address at Bendix’s brother’s home, where Bendix often stayed.
