Waukesha #teen #accused of #’revenge porn’ says he’s learned lesson

A Waukesha teen is accused of sharing a naked picture of his ex-girlfriend after he learned she had a new boyfriend.

It’s known as revenge porn, when someone posts embarrassing naked pictures of an ex online to get back at them.

Officers got a tip from Waukesha North High School this spring when two students were Facebook messaged a naked picture of another student.

The investigation revealed it was the work of a jealous teen who was upset that his girlfriend was now with another guy.

The now-17-year-old learned Friday about the two misdemeanor charges he’s facing.

“I already had a talk with the girl and everything else, and said I was sorry for what had happened,” the teen told WISN 12 News reporter Nick Bohr.

WISN 12 News is not identifying the boy, who was 16 when this happened, because it could identify the girl. He told police he posted her nude photo “because his ex-girlfriend is now flaunting her new relationship.”

He said he’d learned a lesson.

“Just don’t expose the loved one that you actually loved at one point, or just don’t expose at all,” he said.

The 17-year-old, who is being charged as an adult, is scheduled to be in court next week.

He is charged with two misdemeanor counts of posting a sexually explicit image without consent. If convicted, he could face up to nine months in jail.
