Somewhat in the spirit of this little blog, It’s well to document the problem of “sextortion” (extortion). Typically, a young adult or older minor, usually a female, gains the “trust” of someone who asks for sexually explicit photos. Then the criminal threatens to release explicit photos in social media unless “ransom” is paid (there is a criminal investigation about such an incident at George Mason University in Fairfax VA now), or more sexually explicit material continues. It’s pretty obvious to common sense that such a scheme could include photography of minors and constitute child pornography distribution.
CNN has a typical story here.
