A Medford man was charged with giving cash to a 12-year-old Mansfield girl in exchange for nude photos.

Peter Campobasso, 30, was arrested Friday.

Police said he encouraged the Mansfield girl to send him nude photos in exchange for cash and gifts. Police said there are likely more victims.

"Campobasso is believed to have befriended many young girls in the Mansfield/Attleboro area via Facebook and social media," Mansfield police said in a statement.

There is such little hope for the future when you look at both this scumbag and a 12 year old willing to do this for cash. When I was 12 (which wasn't long ago) I was concerned with finding a stick I could use as a bow and arrow. Nude pictures or money were not on my radar.

Where in the story does it say she did it? You are making assumptions and accusations about a victim. Maybe you should focus your attention on the scumbag.

If you had read any other articles about this story you'd have a little more knowledge............... "Mansfield police said Campobasso is charged with posing or exhibiting a child in the state of nudity or sexual conduct"

It says that he tried to. If you looked at the law, you would see that it says that if you try to obtain photos from that child of them in the state of nudity or sexual conduct, that you know is under the age of 18, it is illegal. It didn't say anything about her giving him any photos. I agree with SS. Don't make assumptions with no factual evidence to support it. You shouldn't be accusing the victim.
