Art student charged with revenge porn after submitting photograph of topless ex-boyfriend for art degree

The University of Lincoln student was charged with disclosing a private, sexual photograph with intent to cause distress – the charge commonly known as ‘revenge porn’ after her former boyfriend claimed to have identified himself and was ’embarrassed’.

The original image had been ‘topped and tailed’ to edit out the head and genitals, but the complainant argued he could identify himself in it.

The artist made no reference as to who the image, set within a number of other photographs, depicted, a court heard.

Ms Smith denied the charge, alleged to have been committed between May and September last year, and was due to stand trial at Maidstone Crown Court on Wednesday.

Before a jury was sworn to hear the case judge said he had "real misgivings" about the prosecution’s arguments. He highlighted the purpose of the law, which was introduced by Parliament to tackle the increasing numbers of incidents whereby sexually explicit images or video are uploaded to the internet to humiliate the individual depicted and without their consent.

30 years after theft, FBI recovers Chagall painting stolen from New York couple’s apartment

The theft was ‘an inside job’ by a temporary employee who had access to the apartment building in Manhattan’s stately Sutton Place neighborhood when the owners were on vacation, FBI art crimes unit and Washington Field Office Special Agent Marc Hess said.

A Maryland associate of the thief who acquired the work after a dispute tried to sell it last year ‘ still labeled with the names of its true owners, ‘Mr. + Mrs. E.S. Heller, New York.’ A Washington art gallery owner balked, how’ever, because the piece lacked documents proving ownership and referred the would-be seller to the FBI, prosecutors said in a court filing Thursday.

The filing asks a court to approve returning the work to the Hellers’ estate, which intends to sell it at auction to benefit charities and refund the insurance carrier’s payment, estimated at about $100,000 at the time.

A feud between the thief and a middleman with ties to Bulgarian mobsters eventually led to the recovery of the 13-by-16-inch painting, one of 14 works stolen in the 1988 heist, the FBI and federal prosecutors said.

Because the investigation and efforts to recover the other 13 paintings continue, the suspects were not identified in the court filing, which suggests at least one is cooperating in the case.

Officials: Teacher charged, facing firing after sex with student

An art teacher at Linton-Stockton High School is suspended without pay and facing firing after being charged with two counts of child seduction, a Level 5 felony.

Taylor Valandingham-Dunham, 28, of Terre Haute, faces the charges in Sullivan Superior Court, where a hearing date had not been set as of Thursday afternoon.

A statement issued by the Linton-Stockton School Corp. said Principal Alicia Cornelius made a preliminary decision Monday to terminate Valandingham-Dunham’s employment and suspend her without pay pending official action.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed Monday, school resource officer Joshua Goodman heard rumors of sexual and inappropriate communication between a 17-year-old student and Valandingham-Dunham.

Goodman contacted Detective Paul Clark II of the Linton Police department, who investigated the reports and spoke to the principal, teacher, student and the student’s parents.
