(Scroll down for video) A man who wanted to take revenge against his former lover, uploaded videos of himself and his girlfriend to several porn sites, according to police in Oregon.

Hillsboro police said that they have arrested 31-year-old Benjamin J. Barber, after being accused of publicizing several videos, showing him and his former girlfriend having sex.

Now, Barber has been found guilty of five counts of unlawful dissemination of an intimate image. He was sentenced to serve six months in prison.

Barber was also ordered to serve five years of probation. He was banned from having any contact with the woman and has to destroy all intimate images he has of her.

Barber is not allowed to use any computer for any reason except work for the duration of his probation.

According to the criminal complaint, Barber uploaded four pornographic videos of himself and the woman to nine websites.

The videos were taken while the two were a couple. They were no longer together when the videos were posted on porn sites.

Barber said that he believed he had the right to do what he wanted with the videos and that the woman had no right to privacy.

The woman discovered the videos after Barber threatened to upload the clips.

Barber revealed that he uploaded the videos because he was thinking about suicide and wanted to memorialize himself on the Internet.
