An Atlanta man was sentenced to 24 years in prison for extorting money from several underage boys while posing as a woman on the Internet.
In those cases, authorities say Frazier pressured and paid the victims to let him get close and engage in sexual acts.
Atlanta man sentenced to prison for sexually extorting minors
One of the victims had to use physical force to stop the Atlanta man during a sex act midway through, authorities said.
In the case of one of the victims, investigators say Frazier threatened to expose her to her family and school, sue her and go to her home, sending her more than 100 threatening messages in a week.
The six other teens targeted were out of the state of Georgia, and authorities say Frazier forced them to send him sexually explicit images and videos and then threatened to publish the content publicly when they stopped following his demands.
“He then threatened to expose the children to their families and classmates when they refused to comply with his demands. This defendant is the online sexual predator many parents fear. His 24-year sentence is a critical step toward achieving a measure of justice.
On Aug. 11, a U.S. District Judge sentenced Frazier to prison with 20 years of supervised release for the crimes of cyberstalking, enticing prostitution of a minor and production of child pornography.
“Frazier will spend the next 24 years of his life in prison, which should send a strong message to anyone who would consider harming and extorting a vulnerable youth,” said Chris Hacker, special agent in charge of the FBI in Atlanta.
“We would like to remind the community to be aware that people can pretend to be anyone online and be extremely selective with what they share online.”
