New details in Indiana sextortion case

BRAZIL, Ind.-- A man accused of coercing teenage boys into sex, could have hundreds of victims.

Police arrested 39-year-old Richard Finkbiner last week at his home.

The F.B.I. said that he blackmailed two 14-year-old boys by threatening to post sexually explicit videos online.

Investigators said Finkbiner recorded the images though an anonymous video chat website.

They claim they found hundreds of videos on his computer.

Joseph Hogsett,  an U.S. Attorney working the case said,"We have reason to believe, as a result of statements made by Mr. Finkbiner, that there may be as many as 100 victims or more that have potentially been "sexploited."

Right now, Finkbiner faces 30 years in prision, but investigators said that more charges are likely.
