Daniel Nelson Sherrill

DRAYTON, N.D. — A Drayton man is facing charges for taking nude photos of a young child.

Daniel Nelson Sherrill, 33, could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted on the charge of promoting or directing an obscene sexual performance by a minor, a Class A felony.

A criminal complaint said Sherrill took eight explicit photos from June 2016 to December 2017 of a 6-to-8-year-old girl. The photos allegedly showed the girl getting out of the shower or partially clothed with her underwear pulled down to show her buttocks.

Sherrill is scheduled to appear in court again Jan. 7.
