Man admits revenge porn
The first person charged under WA’s revenge porn laws admitted yesterday creating social media pages in his former girlfriend’s name and posting intimate photographs of her.
Mitchell Joseph Brindley, 24, had taken intimate photos of the 24-year-old woman with her consent while they were in a relationship, police said.
He posted several images on Instagram after they broke up, then when the profile was taken down he created four more pages.
Brindley faced Fremantle Magistrate’s Court yesterday and pleaded guilty to distributing an intimate image of another person without consent in April.
A pre-sentence and psychological report have been ordered ahead of sentencing on July 22.
Brindley had his bail renewed and was warned not to approach the victim.
