A 26-year-old man pleaded guilty on Tuesday, March 1, 2020, to sexually extorting and harassing 15 victims, including one young woman who later killed herself.
Ian Pisarchuk, of the 3600 block of Skyline Drive, Bensalem Township, admitted that for four years he used anonymous Snapchat accounts to threaten and torment dozens of females, some as young as 12 years old, into sending him sexually explicit photos and videos.
He appeared before President Judge Wallace H. Bateman Jr. to plead guilty to multiple counts each of enticing a minor to produce child pornography, possession of child pornography, unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of minors, sexual extortion, stalking, terroristic threats, harassment, and cyber harassment of a child.
Combined, he pleaded guilty to 67 counts. His sentencing was deferred for 90 days as he undergoes an evaluation by the Sex Offender Assessment Board.
