Father admits posing as daughter's fake boyfriend to get nude photos

A New York father is facing up to 250 years in prison after admitting to a court Monday that he posed as his daughter’s online boyfriend so he could extort nude photographs from her.

The Herkimer County man, who was not identified to protect the identity of the 14-year-old victim, pleaded guilty in federal court to 12 counts of enticing a child to produce child pornography and receiving and sending child porn, Syracuse.com reports. He also is facing sexual abuse charges in Herkimer County Court.

Court papers revealed that the man set up fake accounts with Instagram, AOL and a texting service in September 2013 and started chatting online with his daughter, posing as a 16-year-old boy from Watertown. The pair started calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend – even though they never met. By November, the girl told him she wanted to break up with him – but she had already sent him sexually explicit photos after repeated requests.

The girl's father, posing as the boyfriend, repeatedly threatened his daughter online, tricking her into sending nude photos of herself to him, court papers said, according to Syracuse.com.

"I tell u what/ u want to be gone/ then send me nudes and close ups and I will let u go," one text from the man read.

"I told you that a bunch of times when we were dating that I don't like those pics and now you are threatening me that if I don't send you those then you'll send my dad the ones I sent you before?" the girl responded. "My life is ruined."
