SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A San Diego man charged with operating a revenge porn website so he could extort money from those photographed has been scheduled to appear in court next week.

Twenty-seven-year-old Kevin Christopher Bollaert faces 31 felony counts of conspiracy, identity theft and extortion related to a pair of now-inactive websites.

Authorities say Bollaert allowed people to anonymously post explicit and nude photographs of others through ugotposted.com; then he charged those whose privacy had been breached to remove the images through changemyreputation.com.

Bollaert was released from jail late Tuesday after posting $50,000 bail. He is set to appear in court Dec. 17.

His attorney has not returned repeated phone calls from The Associated Press.
