Alleged extortion plot over nude photo lands Iowa man in jail

Posted:

MASON CITY (KWWL) - Cerro Gerdo County authorities say they have charged a Mason City man with extortion after he allegedly threatened to post nude photographs of a woman on the Internet.  33-year-old Frederick Maurice Montgomery was booked into the Cerro Gordo County Jail early Wednesday evening and was being held Thursday on nearly $12,000 cash bond.

Extortion is a class D felony punishable by as long as five years in prison.

Montgomery also faces several charges of violating a no-contact order, failure to appear on a charge of domestic assault resulting in injury and failure to comply with the sex offender registry.

Jail officials said Thursday they did not know if Montgomery had an attorney.
