Man who posted nudes of ex on twitter sentenced to 9 months of jail time


The young man tweeted his ex’s private images and was viewed by hundreds of people he knew… via his twitter account judge says

A Manitoba man was to nine months in jail after posting intimate photos of ex girlfriend to twitter in the act of revenge.

In a May 16 provincial court decision , Judge Robert Heinrichs opposed the offenders bid to serve jail time at home. Judge said his “perverse course of action in wanting to inflict harm” on the woman warrants real jail time.

The offender pleaded guilty to a charge of knowingly publishing her intimate images, known by the initials SA in the court documents.

The male grew infuriated after finding out in the month of March 2021, his ex-girlfriend had been seeing another partner a year earlier — even though the pair were not together at the time, Heinrichs said.

After an initial argument with her on the phone, the man called and texted her hundreds of times, threatening to kill the other man and to post nude photos of her all over the internet.

After an argument with his ex girlfriend on the phone, the offender called and texted her several times threatening to murder the other man and to post explicit pictures of her on the web.

He took his anger out by posting several nude photos to his hundreds of Twitter followers and tagging her.

“Always said I would expose some if I got [expletive] over,” the man wrote to her in a separate tweet.

Man said to be Low risk to reoffend

The woman quickly called for his arrest (within the hour) and was reprimanded five hours later. It was only after this that he asked to delete the photos on his own, which police allowed him to do, Heinrichs said.

“There is no way of knowing how many people saw the photos, saved them or shared them with anyone else,” the judge said.

While the victim didn’t submit an impact statement to court, the harm from the crime “can be both perpetual and personal,” Heinrichs said.

The male young in age (20s), had no previous criminal record, and admitted to what he did online and was assessed by probation offices as a very low risk for reoffending, the judge said.

Despite this, the judge decided that letting him serve the sentence at home would not fit the crime committed, Heinrichs said.

“When he found out that she had been unfaithful to him, he immediately proceeded to inflict as much harm on her as he could,” the judge said.

The judge tacked an extra 15 days onto the offender’s sentence for breaching his bail order by texting the victim and asking her to drop the charges right after police released him and told him to not contact her.

He will also serve two years of probation after getting out of jail, and is forbidden in that time to use any social media services or contact the victim.
