Teenager Gets 15 Years for Facebook Sex Scam

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 81 comments

A Wisconsin teenager has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for a Facebook sex scam that enabled him to sexually abuse seven of his male classmates.

The Associated Press reports that 19-year-old Anthony Stancl was accused of creating a fake Facebook profile purporting to be a teenage girl. During the period between spring of 2007 and November of 2008, Stancl used the profile to convince more than 30 of his male classmates to send him nude photos or videos. Police found more than 300 photos on Stancl's computer. Some of the photos depicted boys as young as fifteen years old.

Mr Stancl is said to have blackmailed the classmates involved by threatening to post the videos and pictures online if they did not engage in some sort of sexual activity with him. CNet cites an older AP report, which states that at least seven of the boys in Stancl's class have said they were coerced into performing sexual acts. Mr Stancl is alleged to have recorded these acts with his cell phone.

Stancl pleaded no contest to two felonies, including repeated sexual assault of a child. The AP reports that he showed no emotion when his sentence was handed down but that he apologized, saying he had learned to understand what his victims went through. He faced a maximum of 30 years in jail.

    People have to learn that on the Internet men are men, women are men and children are FBI agents.

    Sad indeed and 15 years sounds fair for blackmail rape.

    I don't know though, if someone threatened to show my wang online unless I perform sexual acts, looks like I'm going be seen online.

    while over hear in my part of the woods, two teachers from different school districts, one male, one female, get deferred adjudification and probation for sleeping with the students.

    Pretty messed up. No one deserves to be taken advantage of like that but people need to learn that once there's a digital copy on the internet, there's no take backs.

    15 years seems fair.

    I'm with you cpt. Um show me nude or make me blow you.. Ya go ahead and post me up. I'll see you outside in the parking lot.. But the only thing you'll be getting is crowbar to the back of the head.

    And I don't think his sentence is hard enough. 15 year old boys.. Come on. Line him, and all the other molesters up already and put a bullet in each and every one of them. Freaking tired of my tax money going to these bums.

    I agree...
    1 bullet is far cheaper then sending freaks to jail for ?? amount of years... there is no rehab for a person like this. He will spend the next 15 years planning his next attack when released.

    I am surprised it went on as long as it did and that so many kids were involved.

    I'm surprised the other boys didn't beat him up when they met for the sexual blackmail

    Make him produce gay porn during his 15-year stay. Use the proceeds to setup a victim's fund.

    Life's over for you kid, and at that young of an age by the time he gets out of prison my bets are he will be a repeat offender.
