Jacqueline Doyle, 55, created the phony social media account in order to share the “revenge porn” images she had obtained during their relationship, which ended in June 2019
Doyle, from Plimpton, Devon, was given a 12-month community order with probation work after admitting two counts of disclosing private sexual photos without consent following the couple’s separation.
Judge James Townsend said: “These are unpleasant offences designed to cause considerable distress to the victim. It is particularly unpleasant after you involved a member of the victim’s family.”
Nick Lewin, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said the victim’s daughter received a Facebook message from the account of a name she did not know. This account turned out to be the fake profile set up by Doyle.
Mr Lewin said: “She opened the message and saw two [photographs], one of her father’s face and another of his genitalia.
“She forwarded the message to her father and he confirmed it was a picture taken as part of their relationship.”
He also explained how Doyle emailed the pictures to a manager at her partner’s company, but later acted like an angry victim despite using her real name.
She told his boss: “I am not happy with your staff. One of them sent these to my wife.”
Mr Lewin added: “I am glad to say that the company kept things under wraps and the only other people who know are that manager and the victim’s direct line manager.”
Judge Townsend gave Doyle a 12-month sentence and a two-month curfew instead of being jailed.
Doyle was also instructed to complete probation’s rehabilitation activity requirement and pay £85 to the victim.
