NAKED photos of a woman were posted onto a football chat group by a West Fife man.

Peter Chalmers had been on a drinking session before posting five photographs and two videos of the woman. He is now behind bars as a result of his callous actions.

The woman was understandably upset when she found out through a female friend what had happened.

Chalmers, 31, of Loch Fitty House, Lassodie, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on February 9, he disclosed, via social media, photographs and videos which showed a female in an intimate situation without her consent.

He also admitted breaching bail conditions by contacting the same woman repeatedly.

Depute fiscal Dev Kapadia said Chalmers had been out drinking heavily into the early hours of the morning.

At 8.30am, the woman woke up to find a message left on her phone by Chalmers.

“She called him and could tell he had been drinking,” added the depute.

Later that morning, a man saw videos and images of a woman he recognised had been posted on a What’s App group.

“He was appalled by the images,” said the depute. “He was of the view they had been put there without her permission given their very personal nature.”

At 12.20pm, the victim was contacted by a female friend who told her about the images.

Defence solicitor Ian Beatson said his client was a self-employed joiner and lived with his mum.

“Within 40 minutes of posting these images, he realised how stupid he had been. He tried to remove them but couldn’t and then tried to contact the administrator of the group.” He added: “He has alcohol issues.”

Sheriff Alastair Brown commented: “It has the flavour of extortion about. He was blackmailing her. Quite often, I’m told that people have been stupid but it’s also malicious.”

The sheriff jailed Chalmers for eight months and imposed a five-year non-harassment order.
