A woman who was having an affair with a married man sent pictures of him naked to his wife and kids after he dumped her.
37-year-old Laura Arnold from London had an affair with the victim and demanded $10,000 to take the pictures down from social media.
The mother-of-four began the affair while she was married and on being rejected by her lover after their year-long romance reacted by posting nude pictures of him and screenshots of their messages on Facebook and Twitter.
The caption to the posts was: “lying, cheating b*****d”.
She then sent the pictures to the man’s wife and adult children, with a message saying “good p***y always comes with a psycho bitch attached to it”.
Arnold demanded money to take down the pictures, saying “Peace is costly but it is worth the expense.”
According to the Daily Mail, Prosecutor Darren Watts told Uxbridge Magistrates Court, “The complainant said he did not want any more images to be shown and she explained that the only way he could stop it was to ask how much money she would want to take it all down.
“The defendant replied I do not know, let me ask your wife what she thinks. She then sent a message to the complainant's wife saying, ‘It seems your husband is trying to silence me’.”
Arnold admitted one charge of disclosing a private sexual photograph without consent with the intention of causing that individual distress.
Arnold who is on benefits was sentenced to 26 weeks in prison by Uxbridge Magistrates Court, suspended for 18 months, along with a two-year restraining order not to contact the victim or his family.
She will also have to pay £85 in costs and a £115 victim surcharge.
Kiroulus Abadir, mitigating, said that Arnold was remorseful and that she didn't deserve to go to prison as she had censored the image with an emoji, and also because she is a mum of four and she is the only carer for those children.
Kiroulus went on to explain to the Daily Mail, “The photo was to show they had been in a relationship for over a year and she thought the best way to express that was to show the photos and text messages.”
The sentencing Judge French said to Laura, “This is a despicable offence. You set out to cause distress and embarrassment not only to your partner but also to his family, it is unforgivable.”...
