The man was ar­rested and charged for as­sault­ing the woman in May and re­leased on the con­di­tion of not con­tact­ing the woman. On July 21, the woman told po­lice that her ex-boyfriend sent copies of the videos to ac­quain­tances over the in­ter­net with­out her per­mis­sion. The man is charged with pub­li­ca­tion of an in­ti­mate im­age with­out con­sent and fail to com­ply with a re­cog­ni­zance.
