HENRICO, Va. (CBSDC) – Local authorities recently arrested a man who publicly posted pornographic photographs of an ex-girlfriend who was 16 at the time.
According to CBS affiliate WTVR-6, the unnamed man was found by authorities six days ago after he reportedly tagged the woman’s sister in the pictures on Facebook.
Documents obtained by the station indicate that the woman – who is now 23 – admitted that she had sent him the photographs in her teenage years, but did not give him permission to share them.
The man, also 23, was tracked down in his Henrico home after he posted the lewd photographs on the social networking site..
He reportedly claimed that the victim had threatened to take his life and said she had alluded to owning guns to use against him. However, WTVR-6 learned that police found the source of those messages to be the suspect himself.
The man is said to now be facing charges related to possessing and sharing child pornography, as well as harassment over the Internet.
