Posted by Fay Arfa | Feb 01, 2021 | 0 Comments

          A federal judge sentenced Jorge Esteban Sanchez Ramos, 24, to 18months in federal prison for blackmailing female friends and acquaintances on Facebook by threatening to publish nude photographs and videos of them unless they sent him more sexually explicit images. Ramos pleaded guilty in June 2020 to one count of stalking.

          From April 2016 to May 2018, Sanchez Ramos used multiple aliases such as “Jose Gonzalez,” “George Sanchez” and “Jorge Ramirez,” and Facebook accounts to hide his identity while he contacted his victims, who were friends, and acquaintances from high school. He set up the accounts to extort nude images and videos from the victims using explicit images of the victims that Sanchez Ramos previously obtained. He threaten to publish nude or sexually explicit photographs of the women if they did not send him more nude photographs or videos of themselves. If the victims resisted his demands, Sanchez Ramos followed through on his threats and published sexually explicit photos of the victims on social media. If a victim blocked the Facebook account Sanchez Ramos used to contact her, he would create a new Facebook account and mock the victim for attempting to block him. He also threatened to rape one of the victims if she did not comply with his demands.
