A Florida teen was charged with extortion and cyber stalking after he threatened to leak photos and videos of a state senator's breasts.
Jeremy Kamperveen, 19, of Plantation, had obtained the photos of Florida Senator Lauren Book and initially requested that she pay $5,000 to have them removed.
Kamperveen had communicated with Book through text which included sending photos of the official with her breasts exposed and even threatened to end her career by sending them out. It is unclear how he obtained the snaps, which Book has since branded 'distorted, fake and stolen.'
Federal agents had taken over for Book during the course of the investigation and had negotiated the payout amount with Kamperveen.
Using the lawmaker's identity, they agreed to meet Kamperveen for a payout of $4,000 at a local Starbucks in exchange of having the content deleted.
He was then found and arrested at the coffee shop on November 17 by deputies with the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

'I am here because you turn me on. If you wish to pay money instead, then I can take that deal,' he said.
'I truly was only here for pictures and videos so I did not think about a reasonable cash reward. It would not be a small amount so take your
