Woman who shared sexual image of male without consent must await sentence

The case was adjourned until September 9 for the preparation of a pre-sentence report

Craigavon Magistrates Court

A Craigavon woman who shared a private sexual photograph or film of a male without his consent must wait until next month to learn her fate.

After a plea was entered by the 22-year-old’s legal representative, the district judge stated: “I think I will definitely get a report in relation to that.”

Eimear Fox, of Limefield Rise, previously pled guilty to disclosing private sexual photographs or films without consent at Craigavon Magistrates’.

And on Wednesday, prosecution withdrew a second charge of improper use of public electronic communications.

The particulars outline that on July 1, of last year, the defendant disclosed a private sexual photograph or film of a named male to someone other than the said person without their consent, and with the intention of causing him distress.

Entering the plea, defence barrister Cheryl Jamieson commented that a pre-sentence report may be required in the case.

District Judge Rosie Watters replied: “I think I will definitely get a report in relation to that.”

The case was adjourned until September 9 for the preparation of a pre-sentence report and disposal.
