Man guilty of ‘sextortion’ of teens

INDIANAPOLIS — An Indiana man has agreed to plead guilty to charges he tricked more than a dozen teenagers into stripping or performing sexual acts for him via webcam and then used recordings of those sessions to coerce them into making even more explicit videos.

Richard Finkbiner, of Brazil, Ind., signed an agreement filed Wednesday in federal court in Terre Haute to plead guilty to child exploitation, extortion, and possession of child pornography in exchange for a recommended sentence of 30 to 50 years in prison.
