A US teenager convicted of using Facebook to blackmail dozens of classmates into sex was sentenced to 15 years in prison.



Nineteen-year-old Anthony Stancl of New Berlin, Wisconsin showed no emotion as the sentence was handed down.

Stancl pleaded no contest in December to two felonies, including repeated sexual assault of a child.

He apologised during sentencing, saying he has learned to understand what his victims went through.

He had faced a maximum 30-year sentence.

Stancl was accused of posing as a girl on Facebook and tricking more than 30 male classmates into sending him naked photos of themselves, then using the photos to blackmail them for sex.
