DICKINSON — Kevin A. Dvorak, 35, has been arrested and charged with 25 separate counts of possession of materials prohibited and one count of surreptitious intrusion related to minors. All are class C felonies under North Dakota Century Code.

According to a court document obtained by The Dickinson Press, on Sept. 2, Dvorak was allegedly found to be in possession of 25 unique videos of adults sexually violating prepubescent children. The document also alleges that on Nov. 11, 2021, Dvorak “surreptitiously gazed, stared or peeped into the bedroom window of a minor child” and recorded video footage while the child was undressed.
