Penn State football team under sexual extortion investigation
According to reports, 19 tapes were reportedly recorded inside the locker area in total
The Penn State football team is undergoing an investigation following allegations of sexual extortion of some of its players.
The details of the ongoing federal investigation into the Penn State football team and sexual extortion are alarming.
Videos of a group sex act and pictures of nude Penn State football players taken inside the locker room have reportedly been released, according to Penn Live.
The warrants with the evidence were originally requested to be concealed by the university, but they were revealed in a Centre County court hearing on Friday. According to reports, 19 tapes were reportedly recorded inside the locker area in total.
The incident was reported to campus police on September 26, 2021. After being persuaded to share sexually graphic images with a lady, two student-athletes claimed they were the victims of sexual extortion. One of the athletes claims that the person he met through a dating app threatened to send the pictures to head football coach James Franklin and post them on social media.
The report claims that the woman did respond to one of Franklin's tweets in September by providing a link to a pornographic film. After he banned her, it is alleged that she started sharing the material directly to Instagram.
According to the warrants, one of the Instagram accounts the woman used contained a folder with 33 videos and one image in it. It also claims that she has made previous attempts to blackmail and humiliate student-athletes from a number of other states, including high school and college athletes.
