A young woman who posted intimate images of her ex-boyfriend’s new partner online has been sentenced to 90 days in jail.

The victim, identified only as “Ms. X” in a newly released Newfoundland and Labrador court ruling, said she felt humiliated after Felicia Borden posted the photos on Facebook and Plenty of Fish.

Ms. X said her teenage daughter discovered that the images, showing Ms. X both nude and engaged in sexual activity, were online.

Borden came into possession of the images – the court ruling didn’t specify how – in December 2017.

The 23-year-old Borden pleaded guilty in Corner Brook provincial court to distributing intimate images without consent, calling it the biggest mistake of her life.
