Ex Posts Porn Online

NOVEMBER 16--Meet Christopher Scott, the ex-boyfriend from hell.

The 20-year-old college student was arrested Monday on a variety of criminal charges related to his uploading to the Internet of a video showing him having sex with a former girlfriend.

Scott told cops that he posted the video because he was “depressed” over his breakup with the 24-year-old victim, who did not give him permission to disseminate the explicit video. A remorseful Scott admitted that he was “trying to be hateful” and “realized the implications it could have,” according to a probable cause affidavit.

The woman, who dated Scott for six months, told investigators that she first learned that the video was available online when she received a call from her employer (who asked for her resignation). “Many people she knows found out about the video, and she has been getting harassed ever since,” the affidavit notes. The victim also “started receiving derogatory postings to her Facebook which has since been deleted.”

When he uploaded the 26:51 clip to the porn site XTube, Scott included the woman’s occupation and hometown in the title. And he described the video as featuring a “Slutty ex-girlfriend." The clip, which was viewed nearly 36,000 times on XTube, was copied onto other porn sites, where it remains available. Stills from the video can also be found via a Google Image search.

Scott admitted to investigators that he recorded the X-rated video in mid-2009 in his dormitory room at Stevenson University in Maryland (the school’s web site lists him as a member of the 2010 men’s lacrosse team).

The woman told cops that Scott “had continually tried to get her to do things sexually with some of his friends,” but she refused. Scott, she alleged, “then manipulated her into making a video while they were having sex,” according to the affidavit. Scott admitted recording the couple’s encounter on his laptop, which investigators seized last month during a search of his family’s Delaware County home.

A review of Scott’s MacBook Pro turned up the “video of the victim and him that was posted on the Internet,” an investigator noted. Cops also found “several files with titles indicative of child pornography” and one image of child pornography that showed a naked, prepubescent girl tied facedown to a weight bench.

Scott is facing four misdemeanor counts related to the creation and distribution of the sex video. He was also hit with two other misdemeanors since investigators recovered marijuana and a glass bong during last month’s raid at his Newtown Square home.

Free on $25,000 unsecured bond, Scott is next scheduled to appear in Magisterial District Court in early-December. (3 pages)
