OU student facing sexual extortion charges

ATHENS, OH (FOX19) - An Ohio University student is facing felony charges for sexually blackmailing a fellow student.

Prosecutors say the 19-year-old Dorian Graham posed as a female and got into an online relationship with a 20-year-old male student.

It was reported that Graham asked the victim to send naked photos over a social media app called Snapchat.

Graham then posted those photos online, using them to extort the victim into performing gay sex acts.

"It was just another instance of social media and people being too free with their thoughts and what they're doing. We have to remember that when we do things involving social media, that these things are out there forever," said Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn.

Graham is charged with four felonies including sexual battery and extortion. He is currently free on bond.
