A man accused of text messaging nude photos to a 14–year–old Grand Junction boy will not serve prison time.
Friday morning, a judge sentenced 30–year-old Nathan Hepker to 18 months of work release, four years of probation and ordered him to register as a sex offender.
Hepker pleaded guilty to obscenity charges in February.
Police arrested him last year in Iowa after Grand Junction investigators tracked him down using cell phone records.
Investigators say he contacted the victim through the internet.
