Local News

A decal of a topless woman put on a Minnesota Lake man’s motorcycle has landed him in hot water.

On Monday, 39-year-old Timothy James Brandt was charged in Faribault County District Court with two felony charges of non-consensual dissemination of private sexual images and three charges of violating an order for protection.

According to a court complaint, a woman called authorities on July 10 and said that Brandt had posted a photo on Facebook showing a decal made from a picture of her wearing only underwear.

The complaint says there was a caption that said, “Beautiful day to show off the old lady, lol.”

The woman says she had consented to taking the photo, says the complaint, but not to it being shared.

Brandt also faces a felony and two misdemeanor charges for violation of a restraining order.

According to court papers, Brandt reportedly drove up near the woman in public places on two separate occasions.

One of the restraining order violations became a felony, says the complaint, when Brandt allegedly had a replica BB gun and a folding knife with him.

During the hearing on Monday, Judge Douglas Richards set bail at $10,000 with conditions, which includes no contact with the victim.
