Man sentenced for posting explicit pictures online

A man who posted explicit pictures of a woman without consent has been given a suspended jail sentence.

21-year-old Christopher Noble, of Wellington Street, Eastgate, Peterborough had previously pleaded guilty to disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress and was sentenced at Peterborough Magistrates Court on January 7.

The court heard how Noble stored the pictures sent to him by the woman in the summer and later posted them online via video messaging application Snapchat.

While this case is one of the first in Cambridgeshire and one of only a dozen or so in the country to reach the courts, we hope it serves as a message to people that sharing intimate materials is very distressing and we will seek to protect victims by taking these crimes very seriously.

– PC John Bimson

Noble was given six weeks imprisonment suspended for 24 months.

He was also required to carry out 80 hours of unpaid work within the next 12 months.
