Pa. man gets prison in online teen photo plot
EASTON, Pa. - July 26, 2011 (WPVI) -- A Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to at least nine months in prison for what prosecutors say was an elaborate online scheme to obtain risque photos of middle- and high-school girls.
Twenty-one-year-old Ian Shulman cried as he was sentenced Monday for charges including criminal solicitation and possession of child pornography stemming from his arrest last year.
Prosecutors say Shulman targeted students at Freedom High School and East Hills Middle School in Bethlehem. The victims ranged from 13 to 16 years old.
Victims told the court that Shulman assumed their identities online and approached other girls for photos so they could gain admission to a so-called secret sorority. One victim said she had to repeatedly deny that she'd solicited the photos, including to a school counselor.
Shulman apologized during his hearing.
