A HEREFORDSHIRE man has been sentenced after sharing a private sexual photo of a woman.

Adrian Gwilliam was sentenced by magistrates in Hereford in November after he was found guilty of one count of disclosing or threatening to disclose sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress.

The court heard from prosecutor Mark Hambling that the 58-year-old, who was represented at the hearing by defence solicitor Edmund Middleton had disclosed a private sexual photograph or film of a woman in Leominster on August 5, with the intention of causing her distress.


Gwilliam, of School Lane, Leominster, was handed a two-year community order with a three-month alcohol treatment order, and fined £50.

He was also handed a two-year restraining order banning him from contacting the victim by any means whatsoever or visiting her address.

Gwilliam was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £300 and a £114 victim surcharge.
