A former Glasgow, Scotland, nurse has confessed to 49 pedophile sex charges involving girls aged 10 to 15.
Authorities say Barry McCluskey, 39, posed as a teenage lesbian on social networking sites and preyed on nearly 50 victims between 2007 and 2010 from the home he shared with his wife and two children.
Despite having no face-to-face or physical contact with any of the girls, McCluskey was able to lure some of them to strip and perform sex acts for him via Web cam while he recorded the footage.
He also blackmailed some of the victims. According to prosecutor Alison Di Rollo, "Those who were, or became reluctant, he would ask to do more -- telling them if they did not, he may have to forward the video they had already done to friends."
An investigation of his home computers yielded almost 10,000 indecent images of children.
