A vengeful ex-boyfriend who shared a se x tape of his former partner with millions of porn addicts has been jailed – after the victim claimed it made her physically sick.
Evil Paul Dickenson, 36, was caged for 26 weeks for uploading the explicit footage to website Po rnhub following a row with his ex-girlfriend of eight years.
Scarborough Magistrates’ Court heard Dickenson also posted a link to the website to one of his former partner’s female pals – and threatened to share the video with her current boyfriend.
The victim, a shop worker, 29, said in a victim statement: “This is one of the hardest things to do, writing this.
”I can’t express enough what this has done to me, my family. l feel so embarrassed and physically sick.
“l just want this nightmare to be over. I am still trying to get the video taken offline because it was not deleted properly.”
Jailing Dickenson, magistrate Erica Taylor said: “This offence is so serious that only a custodial sentence can be justified.
“The web posting was to force her hand and make her do what you wanted her to do and it has had a devastating effect on your victim which is ongoing.”
Prosecuting, Kathryn Reeve said: “The complainant and defendant were in a relationship for eight years.
“They split up a year ago and the defendant moved to Scarborough.
“She received an email containing a link to Pornhub, which is the largest pornographic site on the internet.
“The link took her to the video of them which was available for viewing by the public.”
Ms Reeve, who said the video had been intended to be kept private, added: “The video was put on a very public and high profile site for all to see and he told her friend where to find it.”
