DENVER — A sex offender in South Carolina admitted using Facebook to coerce young girls in Colorado to send him pornographic images of themselves.
Christopher George White, 37, pleaded guilty to six counts of coercion and enticement of a minor, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Colorado, said in a statement Friday.
White admitted creating profiles under the names “Kent Noelle” and “Glenn Black” and using them to contact 13- and 14-year-olds.
“After first befriending them online, and then texting and even talking with the minors by phone, the defendant then began to use harassment, threats of physical harm, and threats to post sexually-explicit photographs of the children or their friends on social media,” prosecutors said.
White threatened the girls into taking off clothing or committing sex acts for his own personal pleasure, prosecutors said. He also tried to coerce the girls to produce and send him pornographic images of themselves.
White faces 10 years to life in prison, as well as up to a $250,000 fine for each of the six counts of coercion and enticement of a minor, according to prosecutors.
Investigators said it is possible more minors were victimized by White.
