Forsyth County man facing federal charges for soliciting young girls online for child pornography

Federal prosecutors are going after a Forsyth County man accused of soliciting nude photos of young girls and then using those photos to blackmail them into sending more.

US Attorney BJ Pak says authorities arrested 23-year old Edward Okenica of Cumming last week after investigators determined the "sextortion" of the victims had been going on since November.

Pak says Okenica even threatened to send the photos of a 12 year old victim to all of her friends through Snapchat if she didn't supply him with more.

Anyone with information in the case or who believes their child was a victim, should contact the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.
