Lucas Michael Chansler Pleads Guilty to Producing Child Pornography in Nationwide Sextortion Case

According to court documents, beginning in or about 2007, and continuing until on or about January 8, 2010, Chansler used computers and interactive computer services to transmit threatening communications to several minor female victims located all across the United States. Chansler transmitted these threatening communications with the intent to extort things of value from the minors, including digital photographs and webcam videos of the minor female victims in various states of undress, exposing themselves and engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Chansler engaged in a pattern of extortion in which he would at first pretend to be a friend, acquaintance, or admirer of the minor victims on social networking websites such as MySpace and Facebook. Chansler used more than 60 different online screen names to conceal his identity and location.
