Sextortion photos of the reigning Miss Teen USA, Cassidy Wolf, have led to a California teenager being arrested and jailed this week. The Inquisitr reported on Sept. 26, 2013, that a number of other women have also been the victim of this same teenager as he hacked into their computers and webcams to take photos of them for his own behalf.
FBI agents have reportedly arrested Jared James Abrahams, a 19-year-old who is accused of blackmailing and threatening to release naked photos of Wolf to the public. Abrahams has been charged with extortion and cyber-crimes per FBI officials.
Wolf was just crowned Miss Teen USA in Aug. 2013.
Soon after Wolf was crowned Miss Teen USA, the sextortion photo plot from Abrahams took place. Wolf explained that someone was able to hack into her webcam and then stolen pics of her. An anonymous email had been sent to her trying to extort her in exchange for the photos being kept out of the public eye.
FBI officials did a lot of investigation and learned that Jared James Abrahams, of Temucula, was behind the whole thing. The teenager has confessed to using the plot on a number of other women. He also confessed to sometimes making videos of the women as well.
"Abrahams used malicious software to disguise his identity in order to capture nude photos or videos of victims through remote operation of cameras on their home computers without their consent," a police report has said.
