Alleged Miss Teen USA ‘sextorter’ forced victims to strip, complaint says

27 Sep

The 19-year-old Temecula man charged with “sextorting” newly crowned Miss Teen USA and several other young women allegedly told FBI agents that he used 30 to 40 computers to carry out his crimes.

According to a criminal complaint and court affidavit, Jared James Abrahams hijacked webcams to capture naked images of the women and then blackmailed them for more. He allegedly forced an Irish girl and a Canadian woman to disrobe for him, a criminal complaint unsealed Thursday said.

Abrahams, who has been charged with cybercrimes for allegedly hacking into the victims’ accounts and extorting them, was taken into custody Thursday morning. Among his victims was Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf, who went public with the effort to extort her.

The criminal complaint identifies at least seven victims by initials only — some of whom, including Wolf, he knew personally — and revealed that, once confronted, Abrahams admitted to his crimes in an interview with an FBI special agent.
