The leaked photos of Florida senator Lauren Book with which she is extorted

Authorities said on Thursday that a South Florida teenager tried to get $5,000 from Florida Senator Lauren after threatening to publish what he said was a pornographic photo of her.

According to an arrest report from the Broward Sheriff’s Office, 19-year-old Jeremy Kamperveen from the plantation was arrested last month and charged with racketeering and cyber stalking.

The arrest report did not name the victim, but Booker, who is located in Broward County, including parts of Broward County, issued a statement on Thursday that threatening information had been sent to her.

“Three weeks ago, I became a victim of persistent sexual harassment and extortion,” Booker said. “I immediately notified law enforcement agencies and started working closely with them to track down those who sent threatening and disturbing images and information to my phone, including distortions, falsehoods, and being made to intimidate, threaten, and blackmail me. Stealing images.”

Book is the chairman of the Senate Democratic Caucus and a long-time advocate of child abuse and sexual abuse victims. She leads a group called Lauren’s Kids.

According to the arrest report, Book contacted Florida law enforcement on November 12, after someone had sent several explicit photos to Book and threatened to ruin her political career by publishing these photos to the public. An undercover agent took over the communication with an unidentified person and finally negotiated to pay the person $4,000 in cash in exchange for watching the person delete the photo. The meeting was scheduled to be held at Sunrise Starbucks on November 17, where agents arrested the person and identified him as Kamperveen.

Officials said Kamperveen admitted to sending the information and photos to Book. When searching Kamperveen’s cell phone, the agent reported that they found the messages, as well as a folder containing Book photos and videos. The arrest report did not explain how Kamperveen obtained the photos.

Booker said in a statement that the investigation is still ongoing.

Kamperveen’s lawyer did not immediately respond to the Associated Press seeking comment.
