A 26-year-old man pleaded guilty to a charge of intentionally distributing an intimate recording, a charge of possessing obscene films.
He was sentenced to 11 weeks imprisonment, with a third charge being considered during his sentencing.
He had reportedly uploaded a video clip of himself having intercourse with his ex-girlfriend onto an adult website.
The identity of the man cannot be named due to a court order that prevents the publishing of information that can identify the victim.
The man was dating the victim between 2013 and 2016 and had filmed himself engaging in intimate acts with his girlfriend consensually.
After they broke up, the victim requested him to delete all the videos that he took of them, to which he said that he did.
The man then found his old laptop in February 2020 and found old videos of himself engaging in intimate acts with the victim.
He then uploaded one of the videos onto an adult website using a fake name on 9 March that year.
The victim was fully exposed in the video with her face visible in parts of the video, which has been watched more than 3,000 times on the website.
The victim then discovered that her intimate videos was shared onto the website while she was surfing the internet on 1 April 2020.
She noticed that the person who uploaded the video had the same username that her ex-boyfriend used for his social media accounts.
She then ledged a police report that morning and the man was arrested on 7 April, with his laptop, phone and portable hard drive seized.
692 obscene videos were found in the devices, some being recorded by the offender and some were downloaded from the internet.
