OKALOOSA COUNTY:A Georgia resident who demanded a local woman pay him $1500 to stop him from sending nude pictures of her to people on Instagram has been charged by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office with extortion, a second degree felony, and using a two way communication device to facilitate a felony.
18-year old Gregory Wright of Griffin Georgia was taken into custody January 2nd after an investigation by the OCSO revealed he made the demands and also accepted $200 dollars from the victim initially.
OCSO investigators confirmed Griffin demanded more money, and when it did not arrive, acted on his threat, sending the victim’s nude images to other individuals on Instagram.
The victim says the photos and a video were taken when she was sixteen years old.
