Hallock man sentenced for sending inappropriate photos to minor

HALLOCK, Minn.—Prosecutors have dropped a sexual assault charge against a Hallock man after he admitted to sending inappropriate photos to a minor.

Matthew Mark Glad, 22, was sentenced Monday in Kittson County District Court to 100 days in jail for distributing via electronic communication material that relates to or depicts sexual conduct to a child, a felony. After he pleaded guilty to the charge in September, prosecutors dismissed a fourth-degree felony charge of criminal sexual conduct.

A minor previously told investigators she was working in June in Hallock when Glad asked her to step outside, according to court documents. She then alleged Glad pinned her against a wall, kissed her and grabbed her inappropriately without her consent. The charge detailing those allegations was dropped.

Glad admitted to allegations in court documents that said he sent photos of his genitals to the victim and pressured her to send inappropriate photos of herself to him.
