… pretending to be a woman.  Bruce Jenner where are you?  Bruce’s texting got him into a car accident.  This guy’s texting is getting him into prison.

Anton Martynenko, 31, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in St. Paul to three child pornography counts: production, distribution and advertising.

At least twice, prosecutors say, Martynenko’s ruse also led to sexual activity with underage boys.

According to his plea agreement, Martynenko posed as a young female on various “decoy” social media accounts and solicited nude images and videos from high school boys, from as early as 2011 through November 2015. He kept folders of nude photos and videos of young women he posed as, and would swap those with his male victims.

In today’s society, especially in a place as liberal as Minnesota, I’m shocked that this guy didn’t haul out the “transgender” plea and accuse the prosecutor of being “transphobic.”  I also wonder why NAMBLA didn’t file an amicus brief on his behalf.

On a more serious note, this guy is one sick whatever.  He texted pictures of a young woman whose identity he assumed to almost 200 high school boys all over the country.  He didn’t confine himself to just Minnesota.

Facing overwhelming evidence, an Eagan man admitted Thursday to masterminding a yearslong “sextortion” scheme that victimized at least 178 high school boys in Minnesota and other states.

Anton Martynenko, 31, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in St. Paul to three child pornography counts: production, distribution and advertising.

At least twice, prosecutors say, Martynenko’s ruse also led to sexual activity with underage boys.

He’s going away, for a very long time, to a place where he won’t be finding any high school boys.  As a matter fact, he may just discover that his new roomies think HE’S a high school boy.
