A Twisted Facebook Sex Scheme Backfires

How's this for a bizarre blackmail setup: A 30-year-old man was arrested for allegedly tricking another man into committing statutory rape against a 16-year-old girl and filming the incident.

Now the alleged perpetrator is being charged with child pornography. The 16-year-old is also in custody, according to the Kansas City Star. Federal prosecutors said she lured the victim via Facebook, telling him she was 17 and thus legal. They had sex once, and then met up a second time, at which point the girl's accomplice appeared, indicated that the girl was only 16, that he had video of their first encounter, and that he would keep quiet about the incident for $400.

Just another example of why you should not trust barely legal teens who throw themselves at you on the internet. In case you actually needed one.
