A 21-year-old New York man has been released after a month in custody on cyberstalking charges filed in Detroit.

Adam Savader (suh-VAH'-dur) of Great Neck, N.Y., is charged with cyberstalking and extortion through the Internet. He's accused of threatening to release nude photos of young women unless they sent some to him. Many are college students who know him.

Savader was arrested in New York in April and held without bond. He was eventually transported to Detroit, and a federal judge allowed his release Friday. A not-guilty plea was entered.

The criminal complaint says Savader called himself John Smith when he sent text messages to women over a Google phone service. Authorities say he got access to nude photos through hacked accounts that belonged to the women.
