FAIRFIELD, CT (WFSB) -- A 20-year-old from New York City is facing charges, accused of taking an inappropriate photo of a Sacred Heart University student without her consent.
The arrest of Nicholas Otto-Bernstein stems from an incident back in October when the female student reported to police that she believed she was the victim of a sexual assault.
The victim told police she was intoxicated and believes Otto-Bernstein had sexual intercourse with her without her consent.
Police said the victim also reported that a nude photo of her was circulated throughout the cellphone app Snapchat. She said the photo was also taken without her consent.
An investigation revealed that Otto-Bernstein took the photo and sent it to other students.
Police said they did not have probable cause to charge Otto-Bernstein with sexually assaulting the victim.
However, police were able to charge him with voyeurism, unlawful dissemination of an intimate image, and dissemination of voyeuristic material.
Otto-Bernstein turned himself in to the police department on Jan. 10.
