A teacher was arrested, charged and convicted of sexual assault after hacking into his student’s Twitter account and posting nude pictures of the girl, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.
Now, 24-year-old Samuel Alexander of Speen, has been sentenced to serve 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to sexual assault.
According to the police investigation, Alexander published the intimate pictures online after trying to blackmail his victim.
Alexander warned the girl to send him more pictures and videos of a sexual nature or he will publish nude photos of her on Twitter.
The court heard that the teacher had a sexual interest in the girl for a period of five years. Alexander was accused of groping the teen above her clothes on numerous occasions.
At some point, Alexander found nude images and a movie of the girl, which she had taken with an iPad.
Alexander then demanded from his victim to send him more images of herself, threatening to make them public if his demands are not met.
After rejected his demands, Alexander hacked the girl’s Twitter account and published sexually explicit images of her. The girl went to the police, and Alexander was arrested.
Alexander had been convicted of two counts of sexual assault, two counts of blackmail and one each of attempted voyeurism and distributing an indecent image of a child.
He was jailed for a total of 18 months. He was also ordered to register as a sex offender for seven years.
