(Newser) – A North Dakota teenager is in serious legal trouble, accused of using an improbably shallow ruse to trick his ex-girlfriend into having sex with him, the Smoking Gun reports. Police say Ryne Anderson went to his ex-girlfriend's house bearing a tall tale: drug dealers were stalking him and his "life was in danger," he told the 17-year-old girl. They were under surveillance and would be murdered if they didn't meet "certain demands."

You can guess what at least one of the demands was. Anderson showed up at a later date saying "they better do what they needed to do.” They did, and he faces felony counts of sexual imposition and terrorizing. Luck has dealt him a further blow: though originally charged as a juvenile, he's turned 18 since his case was transferred to district court and will be charged as an adult.
