WINONA, Minn. (AP) - A former Winona County jailer is accused of downloading nude photos from the cellphones of people booked into the county jail.

Charges filed against Ryan Brown also say the 31-year-old St. Charles man used those photos as leverage to get additional pictures from the subjects involved.

Winona Daily News (https://bit.ly/1TgZb4r ) says Brown is charged with stalking, misconduct and computer theft. The complaint says in one case, the girlfriend of a man in jail said she received Facebook messages from an individual telling her he had nude photos of her and if she didn’t send him more pictures he would post the ones he had on a “revenge porn” website.

Brown is scheduled to make his first court appearance June 15. It was not immediately clear if Brown has an attorney.
