A Missouri student who pleaded guilty to sending nude pictures of himself to a female friend has been sentenced to up to five months in prison.
The Associated Press reports that Shawnee Williams, a freshman at Claymont State University, was sentenced Monday to five to 10 years in federal prison for the sexual misconduct charges.
The charges stemmed from an incident last year in which Williams sent a nude photo of himself and his then-girlfriend to a man who he thought was a friend.
He said he did not intend to have sex with her, but he was upset that she was upset with him.
The man allegedly told Williams that he did want to have a relationship with him, and that they were going to be together for a couple of months, the AP reported.
Williams pleaded guilty in April to a felony count of disseminating sexually explicit materials without consent and was sentenced to 15 days in prison, the Associated Press reported.
The AP said prosecutors did not provide evidence that Williams had sent nude photos or videos to his accuser, saying that he didn’t know what she looked like or how she looked.
The victim said she feared for her safety.
