BOSTON (AP) — The FBI is hoping to find 240 more victims of a man convicted of using online threats to extort pornographic images from teenage girls.

In November, Lucas Michael Chansler was sentenced to 105 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to nine counts of producing child pornography.

Prosecutors say Chansler, formerly of St. Johns, Florida, communicated with hundreds of teen girls in 26 states, three Canadian provinces and the United Kingdom. Authorities have identified 109 victims but believe there are about 240 more.

On Tuesday, the FBI released a list of screen names he used, including CaptainObvious, sk8er4life2021 and VictorHugo.

Authorities say Chansler persuaded the girls to expose themselves on video chats he secretly recorded, then threatened to put them online unless the girls provided more graphic images.
