Man sends his girlfriends teen daughter's nude picture to all her friends to "teach her a lesson" . Should he be prosecuted?
Eugene Foster wanted to embarrass his girlfriend's teenage daughter when he discovered a naked picture of her on her cell phone.
So to teach her a lesson he sent the image to all 38 of her contacts including school friends, say police in San Tan Valley, Arizona.
Foster, 31, is now in custody on suspicion of sexual exploitation of a minor.
He had a confrontation with the girl after discovering the full-frontal snapshot which she had taken.
Elias Johnson, a spokesman for the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, said: 'They got into a fight and [he] decides I’m going to teach you a lesson I’m going to send this out to 30 plus contacts on her phone and that’s what he did.
'You can’t distribute images like that, no one can, its illegal… there was nudity, clear full frontal picture.'
Detectives are now checking with all of the girl's contacts to ensure they have not forwarded it to anyone else.
Johnson told Myfox's Phoenix affiliate: 'Verify that yes they got it, A did they’d delete it, B is it still on the phone and C did you distribute that knowing what that was?
