OLIVIA — An Olivia man has been summoned to appear on charges alleging he filmed women showering without their knowledge at his hog farm in rural Olivia, according to a criminal complaint filed with the Renville County District Court.

Nicholas William Steffel, 27, faces six gross misdemeanor charges of interference with privacy after law enforcement found six videos of women he allegedly filmed in the nude through a window in the shower of his farm, according to the complaint.

Investigators also found a total of 23 videos and 104 still images recorded between Oct. 30, 2016, and Dec. 12, 2019.

The six videos for which Steffel is facing charges were recorded between July 23, 2018, and Dec. 12, 2019.

The 17 videos recorded between Oct. 23, 2016 and April 22, 2018, fall outside of the applicable statute of limitations for charging criminal offenses, according to the complaint.

According to the complaint, an investigator with Renville County received a cyber tip from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension about the sharing of a video by Steffel and a search warrant was issued to examine his iPhone and iPad.

All six woman in the videos law enforcement found were identified and confirmed they were the women in the video and were at Steffel's hog barn at the time and date of the recordings.

"They did not know they were being recorded and did not give anyone permission to record them," reads part of the complaint.

According to the complaint, all six videos are of the women naked in the shower and the videos show that the recording is made through a window that looks down on the stall. The videos also show that while there are curtain rods, there are no curtains,

Entry into the hog barn is bio-controlled to prevent potential disease contamination and showering before entering and leaving is required.

Steffel is also a former BOLD High School varsity wrestling coach and is still listed on school's website.

BOLD Principal James Menton said Steffel is not currently employed at the school because his coaching contract was only over the winter and has to be renewed on an annual basis.

"No one contacted me (about Steffel) other than the rumors (I heard)," Menton said.

Menton also said he is not aware of any complaints against Steffel by any students, faculty or staff.

Steffel's first appearance is scheduled for June 7.
