Exhibiting Pornography Charges 23 Mar 13

A North Mankato man faces multiple criminal charges after allegedly showing pornography to the occupants of a vehicle parked next to his. 55-year-old Jeffrey J. Swenson was reportedly watching a pornographic video on his cellphone in a parking lot on North Riverfront Drive in Mankato Thursday night, and a semi-truck was parked next to his car. The couple in the semi told police that when they noticed that Swenson was watching a video on his phone, he turned the screen to them so they could see it. He was subsequently arrested, and is being charged with obscene material exhibition, disorderly conduct, public nuisance and harassment.
