WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- An affidavit filed in United States District Court in Georgia details the case federal prosecutors are building against University of North Carolina freshman Corey Gallisdorfer.
According to the documents, Gallisdorfer, 19, a former Forsyth Country Day student from Lewisville, posed as a 14-year-old girl and convinced boys at several Atlanta-area schools to send him naked pictures of themselves.
Gallisdorfer, who used the screen name "swimmerchick2941," told one of the boys that if he didn't send more images, Gallisdorfer would send the original image to the boy's classmate.
The FBI subpoenaed AOL for access to Gallisdorfer's email address, the documents reveal, which led them to Gallisdorfer's apartment at UNC.
Gallisdorfer was arrested on Tuesday at his UNC dorm. He's been charged with one count of sexual exploitation of children.
The affidavit reveals that Gallisdorfer's roommate was interviewed and claimed Gallisdorfer spent 80 to 90 percent of his time in the apartment using his computer.
Gallisdorfer is represented by Forsyth County attorney David Freedman.
"He comes from a great family. He's been an excellent student in his time at Country Day and at UNC Chapel Hill. He has no criminal convictions. People need to afford everyone charge with a crime with the presumption of innocence," Freedman said.
