FD man accused of sexual exploitation of a child

Steven J. Rees, 53, of Fort Dodge, has been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor and invasion of privacy from an incident that occurred in November 2012.

It’s alleged that Rees caused an underage girl to engage in “a prohibited sex act,” according to the criminal complaint filed with the Webster County attorney’s office. Rees is also accused of taking photos or videos of the victim.

Rees, who was able to bond out of the Webster County Jail, had his case sent to Webster County District Court Monday by Magistrate William Thatcher, where his next court appearance will be scheduled.
