Man convicted for 'revenge porn'

A 21-year-old man has become one of the first people to be convicted of a "revenge porn" offence after he threatened to post intimate pictures of a 20-year-old woman on social media.

Jason Asagba, of Romford, England, was charged with the offence on May 15 this year and pleaded guilty at Reading Magistrates' Court.

Police said: "This was an extremely distressing case for the victim."

He has been bailed to appear at the same court on August 7 to be sentenced.
