Man Gets 3 1/2 Years for Posting Nude Photos of Ex-Girlfriend

A Muscovite who posted nude photos of his ex-girlfriend on the Internet was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison on charges of distributing pornographic materials and violation of privacy, investigators said Monday.

The Investigative Committee said in a statement that the 32-year-old put more than 200 nude photos of his 26-year-old ex-girlfriend without her consent on various websites, including a pornography site, where he included her name, date of birth and address.

The statement didn't specify the names of either the man or the victim.
