A woman has been jailed after she shared a naked photo of a man she'd had sex with on Instagram.

Yasmin Walker, from Scarborough, North Yorkshire, UK, uploaded the picture after the man told her he wanted to be friends, York Crown Court heard.

Walker, 30, shared a snap of the man's privates with her 1,300 followers on Instagram, alongside a mocking caption containing three laughing emojis, according to The Scarborough News.

Walker has been handed a three-month sentence.

The victim - who cannot be named for legal reasons - was at the cinema when he was sent a screenshot of the post. He subsequently 'begged' her take it down, which she did after he threatened to go to the police.

Prosecutor Prosecutor Lewis Allan said: "The screenshot was of a naked image of him and posted onto (Walker's) Instagram account.

"In her case, she had 1,300 followers. The image had been online for 11 minutes."

Walker said she had posted the picture by mistake and her defence cited the fact she had lost vision in one of her eyes following an attack in a previous abusive relationship - for which the offender was sentenced to 12-and-a-half-years behind bars.

Judge Sean Morris, the Recorder of York, rejected her claim that her poor vision had led her to post the photo by mistake and said her continued denial of the offence didn't 'smack of remorse'.

Walker was jailed for three months at sentencing yesterday (Thursday 1 April), having previously been found guilty of disclosing a private sexual photo with intent to cause distress at Scarborough Magistrates' Court.

Judge Morris said the sentence sends the message that 'revenge pornography means prison'.

Walker said she posted the photo accidentally.

According to The Scarborough News, he said: "You disclosed, for countless people to see, a personal and very intimate photograph with a sarcastic comment next to it.

"That was sent to him when he was in the cinema... and he had to beg you to take it down.

"I'm afraid that this kind of crime needs to be deterred because cyber crime of this type, that causes people to have their most intimate details splashed around the world, have devastating effects on people, and the public need to know that this kind of crime is serious."

Walker has four previous convictions.

He continued: "You have got your own problems.

"You have been in abusive relationships... but you know right from wrong.

"This kind of behaviour has to be deterred.

"It's going to be a short, sharp shock so that people know revenge pornography means prison."

Walker will serve half of her sentence in prison before being released on licence.

She has four previous convictions for offences including battery, threatening behaviour and drink-driving.
