DETROIT LAKES — Jason Steven Allent, 41, of Detroit Lakes has been sentenced in Becker County District Court for felony non-consensual dissemination of private sexual images.

According to court records, on April 27, 2022 a Frazee police officer responded to a harassment complaint from a woman who said that Allent – with whom she had once been in a relationship – had posted two photographs of her on Facebook.

The woman showed the officer two screenshots of her Facebook page. One photo read "Jason Allent added a new photo to (the woman’s) timeline" and the corresponding photograph showed the woman laying down with her shirt pulled up exposing her right breast and nipple.

The second photograph was captioned " the belly look" and showed the woman sitting, seemingly nude, in the bathroom.

None of the woman's intimate parts are exposed in the second photograph, though her face can be easily identified. Both photographs were added to the woman's Facebook timeline from Allent's Facebook page.


The officer spoke to Allent, who admitted to posting the photographs to Facebook.

On March 1, District Judge Michele Lawson sentenced Allent to 13 months in prison at St. Cloud, stayed four years.

He was ordered to serve 45 days in jail, but can serve them on electronic home monitoring at his own expense. Credit was granted for one day served in jail. He was fined $1,000 plus $150 in court fees.

He was ordered to get a domestic abuse evaluation and follow the recommendations, abstain from alcohol and illegal drugs, submit to random testing, and follow any orders for protection.

He was placed on supervised probation for four years.
