According to WTAE's news exchange partners at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, police said David Burnett, of Sewickley Township, uploaded pornographic photos of a 15-year-old girl to a MySpace Web Page.

According to the criminal complaint, Burnett used his cell phone to take pictures of the victim between January and July of last year. Police said he threatened to make the pictures public if she didn't do what he wanted.
