A lesbian mother-of-four has been told she faces a prison sentence for publishing explicit images of her ex-girlfriend to Facebook.

30-year-old Samantha Watt took the photos of her 21-year-old partner whilst they were dating, and when they broke up she took the classy route of uploading the x-rated images to social media.

Watt replied to commentators on the photos by saying: ‘We all know her well some know her better than others you get me?’.

Watt was reported as sobbing in the dock as she admitted guilt in posting two sexual photographs, with her intent being to cause distress to the victim.

Abigail Walsh, prosecuting, said:

This is a case of revenge porn, an offence created by the Criminal Courts and Justice Act 2015.

It has made it an offence to disclose private sexual photographs if it is done A: without the consent of the individual, or B: with the intent to cause distress.

Walsh added:

There was a sexual relationship between them.

During the course of the relationship the victim consented to the defendant taking intimate photographs of her.

The victim in her statement makes it clear that she consented on the basis that they were private and were never to be shown to anybody.

Watt will be sentenced on November 25.

No longer is it possible to claim ignorance in regard to this type of behaviour, so be careful what you post, and be careful what you share with people you think you can trust.
