LAWTON, OK (KFOR) -  Sean Siwek, 34, is now serving time at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary after being accused of fraud and extorting gay men from behind prison walls at the Lawton Correctional Facility.

According to a court indictment, Siwek smuggled in cell phones and called a service claiming to be gay male prostitute seeking other gay men for sexual encounters. After a meeting was arranged, Siwek “called that legitimate user, claiming to be a law enforcement officer” and told that person “they had agreed to have sex with a minor, which was a crime” and that “they would publicize the legitimate user’s sexual orientation and bring criminal charges against him” unless he paid up.

Using a Green Dot prepaid debit card, “coconspirators defrauded at least six victims throughout the United States out of at least $133,840.”

According to KFOR, Siwek was sentenced to time served and fined approximately $125,000 dollars in restitution. Siwek was originally serving time for robbery with a dangerous weapon. After he gets out of prison, he will be under federal supervision for a few years.
