There’s a lot of stupid going on in this story, so we’ll just start from the top.
A Dakota County, Minnesota man has been charged with solicitation of a minor and solicitation of a child via electronic communication after he tried to use nude photos of a 15-year-old girl as leverage to get her to have sex with him.
18-year-old Deuvontay Shelby Charles was released on $10,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court next month.
According to the police report, Charles requested that the 15-year-old girl send him nude and sexually explicit photos – a request that was obliged. When he acquired the nude pictures, Chalres apparently told the girl that he would post them all over Facebook and Instagram unless she had sex with him.
Police say that Charles did end up posting at least one of the photos on a specially-created Facebook page.
And for his troubles, Charles is now facing multiple felonies. Shocking to hear how this one turned out.
Don’t ask for nudes from a minor. Also, don’t send nudes if you’re a minor. Don’t try to blackmail a minor for sex. And when things don’t go your way, don’t post child pornography on Facebook. These are some basic rules that if you follow, can help you to avoid becoming a story on the evening news. Yikes.
