Anthony StanclWisconsin, Feb 28, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Wisconsin teenager Anthony Stancl has been convicted of using Facebook in blackmailing classmates so as to have forced sex with him. The convicted teen was sentenced for 15 years in prison. Anthony Stancl was accused of creating a fake Facebook profile under the identity of a non existing teenage girl ;”Kayla”.

Following his trickery, Anthony Stancl threatened his classmates to broadcast the videos and display their nude photos all over internet if they refused to have sex with him. Among the many, seven testified that they were being forced to engage into sexual activities while the convicted recorded the entire episode in his mobile. Scanning through his computer back in hometown of New Berlin, the police found around 300 photos of under-aged males.

Anthony Stancl confessed himself being a victim of extortion at the hands of his upper class man during his sophomore years. Craig Kuhary, the attorney of the convicted was however of the opinion that Anthony Stancl’s activity was all due to his anxiety concerning his own sexual orientation and his humiliation at the hands of other students. However, Stancl’s illegal acts seem to concern a lot of different things beside sex. He was expelled from New Berlin Eisenhower High School for allegedly creating a bomb threat in November 2008. The school administrators also received a mail that talked about a serious bomb to go off. The law officials back traced the mail and arrested Anthony Stancl. The facebook sex scam came into light only after the convicted was held in custody following bomb threat investigations.
