Lawyer for teen caught in Facebook scam says his sentence was fair

Posted:

WAUKESHA (WKOW) -- The lawyer for a teen convicted of using Facebook to scam classmates into having sex with him says the sentence is fair.

Anthony Stancl's lawyer, Craig Kuahry, says that the Stancl family and he agree a 15-year sentence was reasonable for his crime.

Police say the 19-year-old from New Berlin pretended to be a girl on Facebook and tricked more than 30 male classmates into sending him naked pictures of themselves.  Those photos were then used to blackmail seven students, ages 15 to 18, to have sex with him.

Because sentencing is over, Kuahry says he can discuss the case.  Stancl was disappointed with the verdict, but he pleaded no contest.

Stancl will get out of prison when he's 34-years-old.  Kuahry says that's plenty of time to salvage his life.
