Man’s dating site blackmail ploy lands him in state prison PDF Print E-mail

    A 19-year-old man was sentenced to 1-1/2 years in prison Tuesday for attempting to blackmail a Town of Port Washington woman he met through a college dating Facebook page by threatening to post provocative photos of her and a recording of a phone sex conversation on the Internet.

    Jeremiah D. Olson of Gays Mills, who pleaded no contest to felony counts of threatening to communicate derogatory information and threatening to injure or accuse of a crime in December, was also sentenced to two years extended supervision and two years probation by Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Joseph Voiland.

    Voiland followed the recommendation of District Attorney Adam Gerol and rejected a request from Olson’s lawyer and a plea from his mother to withhold a prison sentence, saying Olson’s punishment should serve as a deterrent to people who think they can prey on those who use the Internet.

    “The world basically lives online,” Voiland said. “People want to know they can be safe on the Internet.”
