Man Gets Jail Time Over MySpace Photo Of Nude Ex-Girlfriend
BRADENTON, FL (AP) — A teen who posted a nude photo of his younger ex-girlfriend on her MySpace page was sentenced to 30 days in jail. Anthony D. Rich, 19, pleaded no contest Tuesday to child abuse and attempted child abuse. He is expected to begin his sentence in October.
Prosecutors reduced the charges from sex crimes that could have branded Rich a sex offender for life. He was 17 when he posted the photo of his then 15-year-old girlfriend on the social networking Web site.
Rich had dated the girl for more than two years. He posted the photo after they broke up. The girl consented to having the photo taken, but Rich did not have permission to post it, authorities said.
