Busted for emailing intimate photos to woman, police say

Nicholas Lyon

Police have filed charges against a Vernon man for allegedly taking intimate photos of a woman and then emailing them to her.

Nicholas Lyon, 30, has been charged with one count of Voyeurism; 2 counts of Disseminating Explicit Images Without Consent, state police say.

On 9-22-21 Vermont State Police began an investigation after an adult female reported that a male (Nicholas Lyon) sent her a photo of an intimate area of her own body, and the female was unaware that Lyon previously took this photo of her. During the investigation, Lyon sent this same female another different explicit photo of an intimate area of her body, in October.

The investigation determined that Lyon used a camera on his cell phone to capture images of intimate areas of the victim’s body when she was unaware and not consenting to these photos being taken. Months after these photos were taken, Lyon twice sent these photos to the victim, who contacted law enforcement upon receiving the first photo.

Lyon is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 21.
