The victim redeemed the gift cards on Roblox, an online gaming platform, and sent a nude photo to Penczak, believing the user to be a female around his age.RELATED: Sexually-explicit deep fakes, revenge porn could become felonies in FloridaBut once he sent the photo, the victim said the suspect threatened to post his photo online if he didn't do what "she" wanted.Over the course of a year, the victim said he felt forced to log onto the online chat system and live stream disturbing sex acts, fearing that the suspect would expose his photo online if he refused to comply.
