An ex-NASA contractor got his hands of the naked pictures photos of seven women off their computers and threatened to post the photos online if the women neglected to provide him with more racy photos.

On Wednesday, 28-year-old Richard Gregory Bauer, of Los Angeles, was arrested and charged in a 14-count indictment with stalking, unlawful access to a computer, and aggravated identity theft, according to the Orange County Register.

If Bauer is found guilty on all charges, he could face 64 years in a federal lockup, a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California revealed.

He reportedly downloaded explicit pictures of six of the seven women he is accused of stalking.

The man contacted the women using fake names such as “Steve Smith,” “John Smith,” and “Garret.” In some of the discussion, he would tell the woman what he wanted to see in the new pictures that he demanded.

“(Y)ou do this and your photos stay private,” he said to one woman, the indictment stated.

In one case, he wrote to a woman and attached a topless picture of her.

Bauer worked as a contractor at the NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert.
