Milwaukee Journal Sentinel | A high school student from Waukesha, Wis., was sentenced on Feb. 24 to 15 years in prison and another 13 years of extended supervision for using Facebook to deceive and coerce fellow other students into sexual acts with him in 2008.

Waukesha County Circuit Judge J. Mac Davis said the student, Anthony
Stancl, had proven he was manipulative, excessively self-centered and
could still be dangerous. Stancl, 19, of New Berlin, Wis., posed as a
female on Facebook and persuaded at least 31 boys to send him naked
pictures of themselves. He then used the pictures to blackmail at least
seven boys, ages 15 to 17, into performing sex acts.

Stancl must register as a sex offender and cannot use the Internet except with permission of his supervisor.
