Hacker faces over a century of prison time

A computer hacker named Karen "Gary" Kazaryan is currently before a federal grand jury in the Central District of California. A grand jury has returned a 30-count indictment against the hacker and if convicted, Kazaryan could face as much as 105 years in federal prison.

The federal indictment alleges that the 27-year-old hacker scoured social media accounts and broke into email accounts hoping to score nude or semi-nude pictures of women. Not content with simply accessing nude photos from those hacked accounts, Kazaryan took his antics a step further by posing as a Facebook friend and coercing the victimized women to strip via webcam.
He then used the original images that he hacked along with the images captured from the webcam footage to blackmail over 350 females to encourage even more stripping via webcam. For those that questioned his motives or refused to submit to his wishes, Kazaryan would retaliate by posting the images of the women on their Facebook accounts.

The investigation into the hacker is ongoing, but federal agents have reportedly recovered 3,000 nude or semi-nude photographs on the man's computer. 

Cases like this one are all too common these days. Anthony Stancl received 15 years in prison for blackmailing 31 people into having sex with him, using Facebook as a conduit.

I agree with most of what you said, except this line...

"fooling around with women and having them do what women enjoy doing anyway."

These women obvioulsy didnt mind sharing photos with private facebook groups, but not all women would. I also think there is a big difference when forced to do something, even if you enjoy when done willingly.

Most women I know enjoy sex, but if they are forced to do it for someone then that is called rape (even if they normally enjoy it)....

Now this is not rape, cos there was no physical abuse, so he should get about 5 years.

The women should also be sent on an internet/computer security course for dummies. Hell, force social sites, online email services etc to put an e-learning about security - on which the user needs to answer questions before their new accounts get validated (we can't expect majority of people to know shit all about online security).

So taxpayers need to pay for classes ?!?! Are you mad? Anyway, Facebook is a toy and the justice system is treating it like bank account. All these women had inappropriate material on there anyway. Posting on Facebook is like walking down the street naked. Your choice, anyone can look. 3-5 years max. End of story.
