Revenge porn charge: WA man accused of sharing explicit photos of ex-wife.

A West Australian man has been charged after allegedly publishing sexually explicit images of his ex-wife on social media.

Police in the South West said the woman had taken the photos of herself some time ago and had given them to her then-husband.

It is alleged after their marriage ended, the man posted the photos on the woman’s profile page on a social media site.

The man has been charged with four counts of using a carriage service to menace, harass or cause offence.

He is due to face court later this month.
