Man facing court for distribution of intimate images

Facing Court

ACT Policing arrested and charged a 26-year-old man yesterday (Thursday, 7 January 2021) for distributing intimate images without consent.

On Friday, 24 July 2020, the man filmed himself having sexual intercourse with the victim and later allegedly uploaded it to a pornographic website without the victim’s knowledge.

The victim reported the matter to Police on Saturday, 5 September 2020, after discovering the footage on the website. The video has since been removed by the website administrators.

The man was arrested yesterday and will face ACT Magistrates Court today on the charge of non-consensual distribution of intimate images.
