In what can only be described as a bazaar sexual exploitation case, a teenage has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for blackmail. The teen posed as a girl on Facebook and was able to have 30 of his male classmates send him naked photo’s of themselves. The teen than used these pictures to blackmail the other youths for sexual favors.
Police confiscated the teens computer and found over 300 photo’s and videos of other naked teens on his hard drive. The blackmail plot was uncovered after the local high school had received a bomb scare which led the police to investigate further. This is when the under age teenagers came forth with the blackmail scheme being perpetrated by their class mate.
The convicted teenage could of faced up to 30 years in prison.
This is a good example of how social networks can endanger our children and make them victims of sexual deviants.
