An 18-year-old male student is under investigation for allegedly posing as a girl and coercing former male classmates to send him nude photographs.

A former student of Wisconsin's New Berlin Eisenhower Middle/High School, Anthony R. Stanci is accused of then using those photos as leverage and blackmailing some of the boys into performing sexual acts by threatening to release the photos.

Stanci allegedly convinced at least 31 students to send him nude photographs. All of the students attend school at New Berlin Eisenhower.

Police stumbled on the photos and more than 600 hours of professionally made pornographic movies featuring children after they confiscated Stanci's computer in connection with a bomb threat investigation.

Officers investigating bomb threats that led to the closure of the school on November 14, 2008, discovered that the threat came via an e-mail sent from a computer at the New Berlin Public Library. According to reports, Stanci was logged on to the computer at the time.

During the bomb threat investigation, a student -- who was 15 at the time of the assaults -- came forward to police. He said Stanci had repeatedly forced him into sexual acts. He said he came forward because Stanci had requested that the student send him naked photos of his brother.

Authorities say they believe there are more victims and they are urging them to come forward. According to New Berlin police lieutenant Mike Gilder, an investigation showed that Stanci had lifted photographs of women from their Facebook pages and used them to lure male students.

The maximum penalty if convicted on all charges is nearly 300 years in prison. (Advocate.com)
