Bismarck Man Charged with Luring Minors by Computer


A Bismarck man faces two charges including luring minors by computer and attempted promotion of obscenity to a minor.

29-year-old Joshua Bechtle started texting a person he thought was a 15-year-old girl beginning June 23rd.

An affidavit states Bechtle sent a nude photo of himself and requested "naughty" pictures of the girl.

A detective investigating the case says Bechtle brought up the topic of sex and offered to pick up the girl and take her to his sister's place to have sex.

Bechtle was arrested in south Bismarck at the agreed location of the meeting June 30th.

The two charges are class 'C' felonies.

Bechtle made his initial appearance in court today and is held on $2500 cash bond and he is not to have internet or electronic communication.
