LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man for taking compromising sexual images of a woman, then posting them on Facebook.
According to an arrest report, 32-year-old James Dewitt had only been in a relationship with the woman for two weeks, when he began taking the pictures. Police say the pictures were "of a sexual nature" and were taken without her knowledge or permission -- but not everyone agrees with the assessment of the arrest report. One family member contacted WDRB News to say she believes the images may have been consensual.
Regardless, police say Dewitt posted those pictures on Facebook.
While officers were speaking with the victim, police say Dewitt called her. When she placed the call on speaker, so officers could hear it, police say Dewitt threatened to break her jaw the next time he saw her, and that he was on his way to her home, despite the fact that he was supposed to be on home incarceration.
Later, while he was at LMPD Headquarters, Dewitt allegedly called the woman on her cell phone and asked her repeatedly not to appear in court, so that all of the charges could be dropped. Police say he told her that he would "do anything."
Dewitt was arrested Sunday night and charged with video voyeurism, terroristic threatening and intimidating a witness.
