UNION CITY, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors say a northern New Jersey man coerced a 15-year-old Minnesota girl into exposing herself over a webcam.
The state Attorney General's office says 24-year-old Daniel Derringer of Union City was arrested at his home Sunday. He's charged with manufacturing and possessing child pornography.
Prosecutors say Derringer initially posed as a 15-year-old girl online. He then recorded the victim after convincing her to expose herself.
Derringer allegedly contacted the girl again, this time showing her that he was a man. He demanded the girl disrobe again, telling the teen he would post naked photos of her on the internet.
The Minnesota girl eventually contacted police.
Derringer was being held Monday afternoon on $100,000 bail. His lawyer, Stephen McCarthy, says his client has pleaded not guilty.
