NH1 News Investigates Show Me Your Pics: Franklin man accused of sextortion of 10 girls


CONCORD – Officials call a Franklin man an online predator saying he coerced nearly a dozen young girls to send him graphic images of themselves or he allegedly threatened to ruin their lives.

The 21-year-old charged with hacking into the Facebook, Instagram and email accounts of ten girls, and possibly, investigators said, even more.

The FBI calls it another alleged case of “sextortion.” It’s know as a non-physical form of coercion to extort sexual favors from victims. It’s sexual exploitation.

Officials said Ryan Vallee allegedly took control of the girls’ accounts and demanded they give him countless graphic images of themselves or he'd delete or deface their accounts.

He's also charged with hacking into the girls' amazon.com accounts where he’s accused of buying items of a “sexual nature” and then shipping them to their homes.

In the indictment, here are just a few of the threats he allegedly made:

Show me those (expletive)... Show me those suckers...

Instagram will be deleted.... If there is no naked picture of you.

I won't leave you alone unless you send it. (expletive). Naked.

Each day you procrastinate... One layer of clothes will need to be removed.

Take your clothes off... Get (expletive) naked on camera..

The judge released Vallee after his arraignment at court in Concord.

We tried talking with Vallee and to his mother at the courthouse.

When asked if she had anything to said about the charges against her son, Vallee’s mother said, “You know, you need to get out of my frieking face.”

She then pushed our camera and then hit it with her cell phone.

We followed up with another question asking, “What do you have to said about the charges your son is accused of?”

She replied, “You need to get out of my (expletive) face now.”

Finally, we asked “What do you have to said to the alleged victims in this case?”

She walked into the building with a court employee and said nothing.

Minutes later, the mother and son walked out of the court and shouted expletives at our camera.

It’s a case very similar, officials said, involving Ashley Reynolds. She was just 14 years old when she became a victim of sextortion.

“I never wanted to send them or give him what he wanted but I wanted my freedom, I guess,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds, among nearly 350 teen girls victimized in another case by Lucas Michael Chansler, 31, of Florida.

“I just remember getting this message that the subject line said something about naked pictures he has of me,” she said.

Just like in Reynold's case, the alleged victims in Vallee's case told officials they felt forced to comply with his demands.

The FBI said they want teens and their parents to know about this troubling trend before it’s too late.

“That’s how a lot of times these young girls got on this slippery slope of what would be a relatively benign picture of exposing their breasts to fulfilling his perverted desires,” said FBI Special Agent Larry Meyer.

As for Vallee, he plead not guilty to all counts.

His trial is expected to be in September.

Before the arraignment ended, Vallee's attorney said he would give the prosecution 23 more names of potential victims.
