Ohio man charged with trying to extort adult industry worker


AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in northeast Ohio say a man has been charged with extortion for demanding money and sex from an adult entertainment worker.

A 23-year-old woman told Summit County sheriff’s deputies in Northfield Center Township that the man found videos featuring her and threatened to tell her friends and family about her involvement. Police say he wanted $800 and arranged a meeting to get the money and to have sex with her.

Deputies said they arrested him Thursday in a parking lot where the meeting was to take place.

Thirty-seven-year-old Dashawn Goins remained held Saturday in Summit County Jail. No attorney information was available.
