Thank you for your response. I am still unclear about somethings though. I am aware that there might be criminal charges, but probably not. I am wondering if I have a civil suit against him, and if so what kind of attorney? What would I sue for? Your advising me not to contact him, but he's a pyschopath and expects a reply at some point. Also, since he was able to manipulate me and the system before, maybe I can get the upper hand for once by getting to blackmail me again (with the cops involved on my end, of course). I was thinking about asking him what he is offering and then getting him to say he wants me to do ___ for all the pictures, including the private ones. Really, how can I get him to stop posting my pictures on the internet and ruining my life?
