Man denies indecent picture exchangeJuly 29,2014Man denies indecent
An 18-year-old Rutland man denied a charge Monday of sending and receiving naked images with a 13-year-old girl.
Brandon Giles pleaded innocent in Rutland criminal court to a misdemeanor charge of a minor electronically disseminating indecent material to an adult.
Giles, who appeared in court on a citation, remains free on court-ordered conditions that include an order that he not access the Internet or possess electronic devices capable of an Internet connection.
An investigator with the Vermont Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force wrote in an affidavit that police in Vermont were contacted after the parents of a girl in Polkton, N.C., complained that their daughter had received nude photos from a man in Vermont.
After seizing a computer from a home in Manchester, investigators interviewed Giles in Rutland where he allegedly admitted to sending naked pictures of himself to the girl and receiving partially naked pictures in exchange.
If convicted, Giles faces a maximum penalty of six months in jail.
