ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that David Guest, 25, of Hilton, NY, who was convicted of cyberstalking, was sentenced to 27 months in prison by U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle P. Rossi, who handled the case, stated that in 2019, Guest began threatening and harassing an acquaintance (victim) through various social media accounts. Guest posted nude photographs of the victim to various porn websites with the victim’s full name and sent nude photographs of the victim to the victim’s family members, colleagues, former classmates, and friends. Guest also used fake online accounts in an attempt to extort the victim into producing additional sexually explicit content. As a result of Guest’s conduct, the victim suffered extreme emotional distress.
The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Rochester Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Acting Special Agent-in-Charge Darren Cox.
