GUTHRIE, Okla.—A registered sex offender is back behind bars after being accused of blackmailing his ex-girlfriend.

Authorities say 27-year-old Brandon Whitson is charged with violating the Computer Crimes Act and stalking.

Deputies in Logan County say Whitson threatened to post obscene pictures of his former girlfriend unless she gave him pornographic pictures of herself.

When she didn’t comply with his demands, he allegedly posted photos of her on a Hungarian porn site.

In addition to the pictures, he also added her personal information, including her name, address and phone number.

Investigators believe this is not the first time Whitson has blackmailed victims for photos.

If you have any information on this crime, you are asked to call the Logan County Sheriff’s Office at (405) 282-1500.
