A judge set the bond for a Pennsylvania man accused of posing as a modeling agent to get nude photos from a minor.

Eighteen-year-old Codie Nelson is charged with use of a minor in sexual performance and promoting obscenity to minors.

Nelson is accused of messaging a 16-year-old on social media offering hourly payment and additional compensation. Nelson told the teen that she would need to submit a nude photo so that she could be placed in the modeling agency system.

The teen sent a photo to Nelson and he then told her he scammed her and threatened to send the photo to her family and friends, according to the affidavit.

The suspect also sent the minor a photo of male genitalia.

His bond was set for $5,000 in cash, must remain in the state and can’t have contact with the victim.

Nelson’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 9.
