SANTA ANA (AP) — Authorities say a Temecula man will plead guilty to hacking the computers of Miss Teen USA and other women as part of a scam to obtain nude photos.

City News Service reported Thursday that Jared James Abrahams agreed earlier this month to plead guilty to one count of online sextortion. The 19-year-old computer science student is to appear in court Monday.

Prosecutors say they will ask that he be sentenced to as much as 33 months in prison.

Authorities say Abrahams told his victims he had obtained nude photos of them by taking over their computers' web cams.

He would then threaten to post the photos online if they didn't send him more nude images of themselves.

Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf contacted the FBI after she was threatened.
