CAMDEN - Bradley E. Monebrake, 27, of Eaton, was indicted on charges related to sexually-explicit messages sent to a member of his family who was a minor.
Monebrake was indicted on two counts of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles.
According to an incident report taken at the Camden Police Department, Monebrake had sent messages to his relative telling her she “looks ‘hot’ and that she needed to wear lower cut shirts.”
Monebrake later asked his relative to get a hotel room with him to spend the night. Monebrake allegedly sent his relative messages telling her sexual acts he wanted to perform on her, according to the report provided by Police Chief Tim Mikesell.
The explicit text messages continued, according to the CPD report.
When questioned by the Camden PD, Monebrake admitted to sending the victim the text messages, saying however, “he did not mean these messages in a sexual way he was sending all of these messages as a joke and he thought [the victim] took them as a joke [sic],” according to the official incident report.
According to Camden Police officials, Monebrake said “he understood he has a problem and he wanted to seek professional help.”
The victim told police Monebrake has never touched her inappropriately, as she has purposefully never put herself in a position to be alone with him. Other relatives of Monebrake have expressed similar incidents that have occured between themselves and Monebrake, officials said.
A jury trial has been set for Monday, Aug. 25 at 8:30 a.m.
