31-year-old Joseph Reese of Columbus, Georgia has pleaded guilty to charges against him that he blackmailed underage girls on MySpace to send him explicit photos.

Reese would pose as a modeling agent on MySpace then when underage girls would contact him he would start asking for semi-nude photos. Then after they sent him the photos he would use them as blackmail to get more explicit photos. He also made good on his word once by posting the photos of one girl that he received to MySpace.

He’s looking at 5-20 behind bars under the terms of his plea and will be a registered sex offender.

His lawyer is still making excuses for his client…

Hagler says Reese “operates at a level far below that of a normal adult man” and has been diagnosed with social anxiety. He says since his arrest, Reese has lost his job, is in the middle of a divorce, will lose custody of his children and will be branded for the rest of his life.

Awww. Sucks to be him.

I seriously doubt the claim that he operates below the level of a normal man since he had the mental capacity to impersonate someone on MySpace who could prey on gullible children.

Again parents, I recommend that you show this post to your kids to let them know that real modeling agencies don’t use MySpace or Facebook and don’t deal directly with underage kids.
