NAPA, Calif. (AP) – An Oklahoma man has been convicted in California of running a website for so-called "revenge porn" and trying to extort money from victims who wanted explicit photos of themselves taken down.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris said 28-year-old Casey Meyering of Tulsa pleaded no contest on Friday to charges of extortion, attempted extortion and conspiracy.

The attorney general’s office says Meyering operated a website called Winbystate.com that encouraged visitors to post nude photos of "your ex-girlfriend, your current girlfriend, or any other girl that you might know." More than 400 images were on the site’s California forum.

A Napa County woman who found photos of herself there contacted police, who paid the $250 "take down" fee the site demanded and traced it to Meyering’s bank account.
