SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle man has been sentenced to a year in jail in a bizarre “revenge porn” case.

The Seattle Times reports (http://is.gd/Gw18yi ) that 31-year-old Jeremy “Silo” Walters pleaded guilty Friday to first-degree computer trespass and four counts of cyber-stalking for posting nude photos of women on two websites.

Charging documents said the 31-year-old Walters was hired by a woman in June 2011 to transfer data from an old computer to a new one. Included on her hard drive were several hundred explicit photos a friend had taken of her, along with nude “selfies” she had stored.

Prosecutors said that more than two years later the woman began receiving phone calls from Walters, who threatened to send the photos to her family and to assault her if she refused his sexual demands. The woman called police, and subsequently received a message from a friend in England who saw some of the pictures online.

The man was also accused of posting photos of three other women.
