CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A Maine man is facing charges of trying to extort a New Hampshire resident into providing him with sexually explicit photos and videos.
The complaint accuses 21-year-old John Bryan Villegas of Kittery of sending email threats to publish on the Internet and distribute to the victim’s neighbors, work and acquaintances other sexually explicit photos of the victim that he obtained from a computer without authorization.
Villegas made his initial court appearance in New Hampshire on Wednesday on charges of engaging in computer intrusion involving extortion and making interstate threats.
It’s unclear if Villegas is being represented by an attorney. He could not be reached for comment.
