A Fairfield University graduate has been charged with allegedly extorting nude photos from at least six females online.

On Wednesday Oct. 17, Stratford resident Jon Lisi ’12 turned himself in after the Stratford police tracked him through Facebook and confronted him with a search warrant for his arrest on Oct.12.

Police seized two computers, a hard drive and a flash drive from Lisi’s possessions.

The investigation began in August after a female told the police that Lisi had asked for nude photos of herself in an email. After she refused to respond, Lisi sent her a photo of herself.

According to a Patch article, Lt. Frank Eannotti, of Stratford police, said in a release that they do not know how Lisi had obtained the photo. He also said that Lisi had posted some photos on a pornographic website.

Lisi is charged with 17 counts of first-degree criminal attempt to commit larceny by extortion and is to be arraigned in court on Oct. 26. He has been released on a $50,000 bond. In a Connecticut Post article, police said that additional charges may be possible.

The Mirror contacted Lisi early Thursday evening, but he said he couldn’t comment on the situation.
