A Herkimer County man posed as his teen-age daughter's texting boyfriend to trick her into sending pornographic pictures of herself to him, he admitted in court today. The man went so far as to falsely claim the fake boyfriend had committed suicide, then used the photos as leverage when he began sexually abusing the 14-year-old girl, according to federal court records.
They started calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend, even though they'd never met. The girl resisted his requests to send him sexually explicit photos, but finally gave in. By November, the girl told him she wanted to break up with him.
"I tell u what u want to be gone then send me nudes and close ups and I will let u go," the man responded in a text, posing as the teenage boy. "No," she responded. "I'm not going to do that. That's another reason I'm leaving. All you talk about is sex sex and more sex. Honestly that is not what a relationship is about."
"Then I will send these to your dad and then I won't have to worry about anyone else having u," the man wrote, referring to the child pornographic pictures she'd sent.
The man, posing as the boyfriend, repeatedly made the threat of sending the photos to the girl's father, court papers said. "I told you that a bunch of times when we were dating that I don't like those pics and now you are threatening me that if I don't send you those then you'll send my dad the ones I sent you before?" she texted. "My life is ruined."

Well, that f'd up my day...
Death would really be too good a fate for this piece of work... (self-editing...)
That poor little girl.
The world really is a rather dark place sometimes...
Loggin' off to go find some light.
The man faces up to 250 years in prison when Sannes sentences him in July.

What a sicko! That is no Father, that is a monster! I am sure that will leave her emotionally scarred. Someone who was supposed to be there for her, someone she should have been able to trust completely goes and does that to a kid. Unforgiveable!
