YouTube Video Leads to an Arrest

A Houston man has been arrested and charged with improper photography and visual recording. The charges stem from a video recording of the man and his former girlfriend having sex which he posted on YouTube to embarrass her after their 2011 breakup. The girlfriend reported the incident to police after he emailed her about what he had done.

The video has since been removed and the man is out on bail. KHOU Channel 11 legal expert Greg Treece reported that the prosecutor may attempt to get the current charges increased to intent to cause emotional distress. This may be another case that can set precedents for legal proceedings for years to come as more people are seeking to use the internet as a tool for personal relationship revenge.
