INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a Maryland man charged with extorting an Indiana teen into sexual favors victimized other teens after he was released on bond.

Court documents filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis say 20-year-old Trevor Shea of Mechanicsburg, Md., has agreed to plead guilty to charges of sexually exploiting children stemming from both cases.

The documents say Shea coerced girls in Florida, Kansas and Maryland into various acts after his release on bond following his initial indictment in June 2010. Shea had agreed not to use a computer as a term of release.

Shea could face 15 to 30 years in prison on each of the seven counts against him, and up to 30 years more for violating his pre-trial release terms.

Shea's attorney, Michael Donahoe, declined comment.
