(CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES, Ca. - A Los Angeles man pleaded no contest on Wednesday after being accused of creating 130 fake Facebook identities to harass his 16-year-old ex girlfriend.

Prosecutors said Jesus Felix, 22, also posted phony Craigslist profiles using sexually explicit photos of the girl between. The Los Angeles city attorney's office states that he pleaded no contest to two counts of violating California's new impersonation law that went into effect on January 1st. He was also charged with one count of making harassing telephone calls.

The 16-year-old's mother discovered the profiles with sexually explicit photographs and her contact information online. Felix is said to have repeatedly called and harassed the mother over the phone.
