A former Minnesota state trooper on Wednesday pleaded guilty to texting himself intimate pictures from a woman's cell phone after she'd been in a suspected DWI crash. Albert Kuehne, 37, was originally charged with two felony harassment counts that could've carried a possible five-year prison sentence.
But Kuehne pleaded guilty in Hennepin County District Court to a lesser charge of misdemeanor nonconsensual dissemination of private sexual images and agreed to two years of probation. The woman was detained as a DWI suspect before she was taken to the hospital for treatment. After she was released from the hospital, the driver's boyfriend saw in the synched Macbook that her cell phone had been accessed and it sent instant messages "containing nude photographs of the victim to an unknown phone," according to the complaint.
Trooper video of the March 25 crash scene showed the woman being led to a squad car and Kuehne instructing her to "give me your phone," according to the complaint. When three pictures were sent from her phone, and as the woman was being treated by paramedics, "it appears that the defendant was alone in the squad car at that time," the complaint said.
Two of the photos show the victim's exposed breasts," the complaint continued. She denied giving the defendant permission to access her phone.
Kuehne, who lives in Dayton, Minnesota, was put on administrative leave in May last year and fired four months later. His lawyer could not be immediately reached for comment on Thursday.
