Anne Arundel Co. man terrorized 13-year-old girl for months: officials

BALTIMORE (AP) — A convicted sex offender has pleaded guilty to coercion and enticement of a child after terrorizing a 13-year-old girl for months.

Piere Ceradoy, 37, of Crofton, Maryland, repeatedly enticed the victim to take photographs and stream live videos of herself engaging in sexually explicit activities, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Maryland said.

Ceradoy regularly threatened to kill the child and her family while coercing her to send more photos and videos, officials added.

Prosecutors said he also sent the victim explicit images of himself.

At the time, Ceradoy was on parole in Washington state and was registered as a sex offender. He had two convictions in 2014.

Ceradoy pleaded guilty Wednesday as part of a plea agreement. Sentencing is set for May. He faces 25 years in prison.
