Jonathan Kassi, Accused of sexually exploiting children online

Los Angeles police arrested Kassi in Van Nuys, outside Los Angeles, on Thursday, police announced Monday. He was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for extortion and attempted disorderly conduct, for allegedly posting a photograph or recording without consent.


Detectives believe Kassi may have other victims, and ask anyone with information on him to contact Sgt. Sean Pierce #3415 of the San Jose Police Department ICAC Unit at (408) 537-1397 or email [email protected].

The San Jose Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force began the investigation on February 26. That’s the day 17-year-old Ryan Last’s mother, Pauline Stuart, said he was found dead.

Stuart spoke about her child in May with ABC affiliate KGO-TV in San Francisco. She said that he was spending a lot of time online during the COVID-19 pandemic and started talking to someone she thought was a teenager.


He sent explicit photos of himself to the person, “and as soon as he did, they demanded $5,000,” Stuart said. “He couldn’t pay that, then they negotiated and he was able to pay $150 from his account, but that was the problem, because as soon as he paid they realized there was money in there.”

The scammer continued to threaten to publish the photos and Last committed suicide on February 26, his mother said. He was a Boy Scout and an outstanding student, she said.

“His note of him apologizing for not being smarter,” Stuart said. “For him, he wasn’t smart because he fell for this scam. He believed in someone and it tears me apart that he felt like he wasn’t smart because someone took advantage of him.”


Stuart said she said goodnight to her son at 10 p.m. m., and at 2 a.m. m., he had taken his own life after continued contact with the con man, who police now say is Kassi.Read More…..
