VERNON — A 30-year-old man is facing multiple charges following an incident in Vernon.

On September 22, State police began an investigation after an adult woman reported that Nicholas Lyon, of Vernon, sent her a photo of an intimate area of her own body.

The woman was unaware that Lyon had previously taken this photo of her.  

During the investigation, Lyon sent this same woman a different explicit photo of an intimate area of her body, in October.

Following an investigation, it was found 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.  

He is charged with 1 count of voyeurism, 2 counts of disseminating explicit images without consent.
