A St Andrew man accused of posting nude pictures of his ex-girlfriend on two social media networks is facing criminal charges in what police investigators have described as a case of revenge porn.

Forty-six-year-old Dane Gordon appeared before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court yesterday charged with breaches of the Obscene Publication Act of 1927 and the Cybercrimes Act of 2015.

However, the case has been referred to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions to determine whether the correct charges have been filed.

It’s alleged that Gordon posted the nude pictures of his former spouse on Facebook and WhatsApp last month after failing to rekindle their relationship.

According to investigators, the pictures were taken while the 19-year-old woman slept at Gordon’s house in Seaview Gardens, in St Andrew.

He is to return to court on December 8.
