Ann-Marie Clarke, mother, 36, first woman to be convicted of revenge porn. £50 fine. Police to appeal penalty.

Our thanks to Paul for this. The start of the article:

Police are to appeal after a Coventry mum was fined just £50 for posting intimate photos of an ex-boyfriend on social media.

Ann-Marie Clarke, aged 36, from Stoke, became the first woman in the West Midlands to be convicted under revenge porn laws.

Coventry Magistrates Court heard she had posted intimate photos of an ex-boyfriend on Facebook, and even went as far as setting one image – with his genitals exposed – as her own profile picture.

Clarke admitted disclosing private sexual photographs online and was fined £50.

In a statement afterwards, West Midlands Police said it was “set to appeal the sentence.”

Officers said the messages were designed to humiliate the 32-year-old victim and had left him “emotionally and psychologically scarred”.

Women will take the message from this case that they can emotionally and psychologically scar men for just £50. Quite a bargain, courtesy of our relentlessly anti-male criminal justice system.

    Exactly So. You do a great service showing the gender justice gap. In my experience men are amazingly trusting of our courts to be fair. Till they find otherwise.

    This is horrendous – it really is more than “revenge porn” but could also be considered harassment and a form of sexual abuse. Can he sue her in civil court?
