York County, Pennsylvania authorities say Jan Rac, 36, of the 7800 block of South Lavergne Ave., Burbank, tried to blackmail his former girlfriend after the Hanover, Pennsylvania area woman broke off their long-distance relationship last autumn.
Rac became angry after the breakup and drove to York County from his home in Illinois, a distance over 650 miles, to confront the woman according to police documents. Rac threatened to distribute sex tapes and nude photos of her unless she gave him thousands of dollars in cash, the York Dispatch reports.
Police documents allege that Rac sent explicit videos of the woman to her friends and relatives via Facebook Messenger and threatened to post copies to Youporn.com, an internet porn-sharing website.
The alleged incident happened in September and Rac was charged shortly thereafter. Rac had been free on $75,000 bail but was ordered to prison last week after refusing to submit to GPS monitoring according to the York County District Attorney's Office.
This was the second time Rac's bail was revoked in this case; in November his bail was rescinded for a time after he contacted his ex-girlfriend in violation of the conditions of his release the district attorney's spokesman said.
Rac's defense attorney Jay Whittle told the York Dispatch that Rac maintains his innocence.
