At least 19 women were victimized by a computer hacker who broke into their email accounts, captured risqué photographs of the women and then swapped them for the women's Facebook profile pictures, authorities say.
The hacker, Joseph Bernard Campbell, 24, of Largo, has agreed to plead guilty to federal charges of cyberstalking and unauthorized access to a computer, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Tampa. He is scheduled to enter his plea Aug. 5 before U.S. District Judge Richard Lazzara.
The women "were devastated," said Lt. Bill Sohl of the Belleair Police Department. "All of a sudden they were getting phone calls from their friends, saying, 'Do you know what's on your Facebook page?' "
