In the wake of a Fairmont man’s recent guilty plea in a “sextortion” case involving more than 40 minor girls, the U-S Attorney for Minnesota, Erica McDonald has this message:

“If there is a child out there, a parent out there, a teacher out there, a nurse out there, someone who believes they are a victim or know a victim of sextortion, or any type of child exploitation, please report it.”

McDonald says parents can find essential Internet safety tips for kids and parents on the FBI’s website. On Thursday, 20-year-old Dylan Deling admitted to using social media to extort girls between the ages of 11 and 17 for sexually explicit chats and images or videos.
