INTERNATIONAL FALLS, MN -

An International Falls man, accused of luring both adult and juvenile women into sending nude photos, has been sentenced to four years in prison. 

Cory Maish was convicted of felony identity theft in Koochiching County court on Wednesday and ordered to spend 48 months in prison.

In the past, he has been charged with possessing child pornography, identity theft and other crimes.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says investigators uncovered an identity theft scheme.

The criminal complaint states Maish stole the identity of another man, and then set up several social media profiles using that man's name to try and get victims to provide nude images.

Police say Maish went by several aliases including Joshua Stougard and Jimmy Ruelle. 

If you believe you had contact with him then you are urged to contact the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
