Grimsby man shares revenge porn photos of woman from dating website

A woman was advised by a complete stranger through a private message that intimate photos of her were posted to a “revenge porn” website by a man she met on a dating website. The woman was left devastated after Jason Poucher, 25, of Grimsby posted the naked photos of her online after they swapped intimate pictures.

The victim previously sent intimate pictures of herself to Poucher with her face exposed. Poucher betrayed her trust and posted nine images of her online. He admitted disclosing the private photographs without the woman's consent on 18 September.

Grimsby magistrates heard that Poucher grew close to his victim through a dating website and that their messages became more sexual in nature, and Poucher convinced the woman to swap explicit pictures with him. The woman stated that seeing the images of herself online truly affected her life. Her trust, privacy and confidentiality had been breached.

Poucher's attorney, Andrea Wilkes, said her client had been drinking and showed genuine remorse for his actions. “He is fully aware of the serious nature of the offence,” said Wilkes. He had no previous convictions. Poucher was given 100 hours of unpaid work, five days of rehabilitation and was ordered to pay £200 compensation, £85 costs and a £150 court charge.
