When Lucas was born I couldn’t pick him up at first as he looked like Thomas. But when I held him I fell in love.
to stay away from Charley. District Judge Frederick Rutherford said Ormsby’s actions were “vile and disgusting” and told him: “You would have intended to cause as much pain as possible, without any care in the world, for that young lady.”
But as Ormsby started his sentence, former waitress Charley was still picking up the pieces of her shattered life.
She went on: “I was utterly ashamed. People I didn’t know were sending messages to my Facebook inbox calling me names and saying stuff like ‘nice porno’.
“Being pregnant I was already conscious aboutb theh way I Il looked kd and dh there was my naked body on show for everyone to see.
“Worse still, he’d filmed me in secret. It was all so disgusting.
“He even tried to apologise to me outside court when I went for the sentencing. He put his hand on my stomach and asked ‘how’s my little boy?’
“I just pushed him off and walked away.”
Charley met Ormsby in September 2014 when she was on a catering course at Hull College – where he was studying dance and music. She fell for him despite friends’ w warnings to keep clear because he was a cheat. “He was super confident and more th than a bit in love with himself,” said C Charley. “My friends kept telling me he was a to total player and not to get involved but, st stupidly, I didn’t listen. “We dated for two years and he was qu quite jealous and possessive and didn’t wa want me to see my friends, only his. “I was really shocked when I found ou out I was pregnant but he seemed really ha happy to be a dad.
“Our“relationship was really off and on but when I found out he’d been cheatingh with a couple of people I knew I didn’t want that for our baby.” Charley had baby Lucas last March. Telling of the moment he was born, she said: “I was scared to pick him up.
“He looked so much like Thomas that I worried I couldn’t love him.
“All I could think was that part of him belonged to the man who had shamed me in public. But then I held Lucas and it all went away.”
Charley now faces the daunting prospect of seeing Ormsby again as he has applied for visiting rights. She admitted: “I can’t stand the thought of it. How could I ever explain to Lucas what his dad did?”
Now she wants more young victims of revenge porn to stand up for themselves.
A report last September revealed 61 per cent of cases result in no action, sometimes due to lack of evidence or the victim withdrawing the complaint.
More than 200 people have been convicted under the new law.
A spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service said: “Revenge porn is a particularly nasty crime and we have been bringing successful cases to court for some years under existing legislation.
“The new offence has added to the powers available to prosecutors and the CPS will use this legislation to bring the strongest possible cases to court.”
And Charley has no regrets about turning Ormsby in.
She added: “The best thing I could have done was get Tom convicted.
“It’s not right that people get away with humiliating their victims and I’d urge any woman to do the same as me.
“The sheer mention of his name makes me shiver and feel physically ill. I can’t believe I was once in love with him.”
