Indianapolis Man Admits Coercing Sex from Girls

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ A 24-year-old Indianapolis man has admitted tricking teenage girls into sending him explicit photos via Facebook and using the pictures to coerce the girls into having sex with him.
Twenty-four-year-old Austin Williams pleaded guilty Monday to federal charges of producing, receiving and distributing child pornography and coercing minors into sexually explicit conduct. His sentencing date isn't determined.
Court documents say Williams created fake profiles on the social networking site to pose as teenage girls, then used those false identities to befriend at least 10 Indianapolis-area girls as young as 13 and persuaded them to send him explicit photos of themselves. A complaint said he threatened some that he would post the photos on Facebook unless they had sex with him.
 A message seeking comment was left with Williams' attorney.
