On February 2, 2021, JEC was found guilty and given a conditional sentence of incarceration followed by probation for the non-consensual distribution of intimate images of his ex-girlfriend. His ex-girlfriend J.M., whose identity is protected, had been notified by a friend that there were naked pictures of what he thought looked to be her on a website called Fetlife.com. She went on the website and saw that they were of her, although her face was blurred out. She tried to get the website to take down the images, however, they would not, therefore, she contacted the police. Police tracked the individual who uploaded the images, and it was tracked back to JEC. The images were taken with the consent of JM however after the relationship ended, she had asked him to delete the pictures and he never asked her if he could post the pictures. JM reported that after this incident she had past trauma of sexual abuse resurface and that her ability to form relationships and trust has been damaged. JM also turned to drugs and alcohol to cope. She has gone through therapy to help with the challenges this offence has caused her.
