Adam Savader, a 21-year old former intern for Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney during the 2012 Presidential campaign, was arrested at his home in Long Island Tuesday.
Authorities tell The New York Daily News that Savader is suspected of cyber-stalking a blackmailing various women over the Internet.
Savader has been charged with illegally obtaining naked photos of 15 females and threatening to make them public unless… well, the woman sent him even more naked pictures of themselves.
The SUNY Farmingdale student allegedly hacked into the accounts of those from around the country, many of whom he knew in high school.
Law enforcement officials have released examples of the threats Savader would make against his victims, including one text to a woman from October that reads:
“Do it from ur phone RIGHT NOW! I swear to God don’t be stupid. U don’t want every1 including your parents seeing your t–s (and) ass.”
Adam Savader appeared in Federal Court this week on the extortion charges, and a judge ordered him held pending a bail hearing Friday.
He’ll be prosecuted in Michigan because that is where the first case was reported.
If convicted, the college student faces up to five years in prison.
