Guilty plea in sex tape blackmail case

An Overland Park man pleaded guilty in Johnson County District Court to felony charges of blackmail and breach of privacy

An Overland Park man pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges that he tried to blackmail a woman over a secretly-recorded videotape of her in the nude.

Joshua A. Wolf, 25, pleaded guilty in Johnson County District Court to felony charges of breach of privacy and blackmail.

The 21-year-old woman had testified in an earlier preliminary hearing that Wolf tried to coerce her into sexual activity by threatening to post the video online.

Wolf also had been charged with a similar accusation involving a 17-year-old girl, but a judge dismissed that blackmail charge after the preliminary hearing. And on Tuesday, prosecutors dismissed a charge of sexual exploitation of a child involving that girl.

Wolf is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 12.
