Prosecutor Lewis Allan said: "The screenshot was of a naked image of him and posted onto (Walker's) Instagram account.

"In her case, she had 1,300 followers. The image had been online for 11 minutes."

In her defense, Yasmin said she uploaded the picture by mistake and stated that previously she was in an abusive relationship, and because of which she lost vision in one of her eyes. The offender was then sentenced to 12 and a half years behind jail bars. 

Judge Sean Morris, the Recorder of York, rejected her claim that her poor vision had led her to post the photo by mistake and said her continued denial of the offense didn't 'smack of remorse'.

According to The Scarborough News, he said: "You disclosed, for countless people to see, a personal and very intimate photograph with a sarcastic comment next to it.

"That was sent to him when he was in the cinema... and he had to beg you to take it down.

"I'm afraid that this kind of crime needs to be deterred because cyber crime of this type, that causes people to have their most intimate details splashed around the world, have devastating effects on people, and the public need to know that this kind of crime is serious."
