A university student is now pondering his fate after he admitted to taking naked pictures of his girlfriend without her knowledge and posting them on a social media website.

The young man, Micah McCauley, will be sentenced in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to obscene publication in court last Friday.

Senior Parish Judge Judith Pusey, before extending McCauley’s bail, hinted that she was going to use his sentencing to register the court’s dissatisfaction with the practice, which is becoming quite prevalent.

"To all them people on Facebook posting pictures of people, this is to be a lesson," she warned.

According to the police report, McCauley took pictures of the complainant, who is also a university student, and posted then to Tumblr.

The complainant, who was unaware of her boyfriend’s actions, later learnt that naked photos of her were circulating on the
Internet after her friends saw the photos and brought them to her attention.

She reported the matter and, following an investigation, McCauley was arrested and charged.
