Sean Spaulding, 21, also duped a girl into sending him nude photos last June, deputies said, and pretended to be a Portland woman online in attempts to get more nude images of women. He was arrested Feb. 15 and indicted Friday, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.   

Deputies said a Tigard woman reported Jan. 31 that she had started getting text messages containing nude photos of herself from someone she didn’t know. The photos, allegedly sent by Spaulding, were “clearly taken without her knowledge using a hidden camera,” deputies said.

Detectives found the other alleged criminal activity while investigating the photo blackmail case, according to the sheriff’s office.

The agency said Spaulding’s indictment includes first-degree invasion of personal privacy, second-degree encouraging child sex abuse, identity theft, computer crime, coercion and attempted coercion charges.

Deputies think there may be more alleged victims. They ask anyone who has information to that effect to call the sheriff’s office at 503-629-0111.
