Cassidy Marie Wolf (born July 5, 1994) is an American beauty queen who was crowned Miss Teen USA 2013.

Pageants[edit]

While attending Great Oak High School in Temecula, she was crowned Miss Teen Riverside County.[1] Wolf was crowned Miss California Teen USA in 2013, and later the same year Miss Teen USA 2013 on August 10, 2013 in the Bahamas.[2] Wolf was crowned the 31st Miss Teen USA.[3] She was 1st Runner-Up at Miss California Teen USA 2012.[4]

Victim of Sextortion[edit]

Wolf was a victim of sextortion, after photographs of her were hacked and used to blackmail her.[5][6][7] The FBI ran a probe after Wolf reported a threatening email demanding a 'special performance' for the hacker, who she suspected to be Jared James Abraham, her former high school classmate. On 26 September 2013, Abraham surrendered to FBI in the Orange County.[8] On March 18th, 2014, Abraham was sentenced to 18 months in prison for hacking over 100-150 computer accounts, including twelve of girls which he used for the purpose of sextortion.[9] Jared James Abrahams plead guilty "to hacking into the computers of dozens of young women to secretly obtain nude images and videos in 2013", such as a 14-year-old girl.[10] Abrahams will serve "an 18-month prison term."[10]

Achievements[edit]

Wolf was a semi-finalist for the Los Angeles Music Center Spotlight Awards and a Merit Recipient for the National Young Arts Foundation. She was also been awarded several talent scholarships to Joffrey Ballet in New York and was invited to be part of the professional Trainee Jazz Program.[11]
