A Pennsylvania man has been charged in Michigan with tricking people into sex acts over Skype and then sending the images to others on Facebook.

Joseph Ostrowski already is under a separate indictment in Scranton, Pa., that accuses him of producing child pornography. He's been in custody since May.

Federal prosecutors say crimes in East Lansing, Mich., and Pennsylvania occurred last year while Ostrowski was a football coach at a Catholic high school in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

Ostrowski's lawyers decline to comment. He was indicted Wednesday by a grand jury in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The indictment says Ostrowski secretly took over Facebook accounts and then used them to contact people in East Lansing and persuade them to engage in sex acts over Skype. He's accused of sending images to Facebook users.
