A 19-year-old Southern California computer student is facing federal prison for hacking the webcams of Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf and a dozen other young women worldwide and trying to blackmail them by going public with naked photos he secretly took.
Jared James Abrahams of Temecula pleaded guilty Tuesday to four counts of extortion and one count of unauthorized access of a computer.
Court records show the victims ranged from their late teens to early 20s, including some minors, and were located in Southern California, Maryland, Ireland, Canada, Russia and Moldova. The plot lasted from early 2012 until June 2013.
Abrahams threatened to post the illegally obtained photos if his targets did not send him more nude images or strip for him on camera. At least two complied with his demands.
“I hacked several girls’ computers and, using their webcams, took photos of them when they weren’t aware,” Abrahams said in court, admitting that he was aware that he was extorting them.
