LOS ANGELES (AP) - A 19-year-old Los Angeles County man has pleaded not guilty to more than 150 counts of porn extortion after authorities say he tricked teenage girls into sending him nude photos.

The District Attorney’s Office said Friday that Cesar Estrada of Rosemead was charged with felony and misdemeanor counts of extortion, lewd acts upon a child, possessing child pornography and other crimes. He was jailed on $400,000 bail.

Authorities say Estrada-Davila sought out girls on social networking websites, telling them he was a modeling agent.

After asking them to send him photos of themselves in their underwear, he allegedly threatened to share those photos with their families unless they sent him nude pictures.

He was arrested after a victim told her parents.

Authorities say victims ranged in age from 12 to 17.
