May 17, 2013

New Mexico State Police say a 17-year-old Glorieta girl is accused of trying to blackmail a 43-year-old man over consensual sex by threatening to falsely report that he raped her.

According to police, the man said the girl demanded that he pay her $1,500.

State Police says the girl made incriminating statements during an arranged phone call with the man and was arrested when she arrived at a store parking lot, supposedly so the man could pay her.

The girl has been charged with extortion but a determination has not been made whether she will be face juvenile or adult proceedings.

It could not be immediately determined from an online court docket whether the girl has entered a plea or has an attorney.
