Louisiana Woman Arrested For Sending Nude Photos Via Snail Mail
It is unadvisable, not illegal, to send someone a naked picture of yourself. It is not legal to send a naked picture of someone else without their knowledge and consent. It is most definitely, absolutely illegal to send these non-consensual nude photos together with a letter degrading the subject of said photos to 30 folks using the good old United States Postal Service - but I guess that didn't occur to Sara Pharis of Sulphur, Louisiana (pictured above).
According to investigators with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office, that's exactly what the 32-year-old did. Allegedly, Pharis put together the packages and drove 130 miles from her home in order to mail them out from a Texas town just north of Houston. Shortly afterwards, recipients of these "don't-care" packages notified police. According to KATC, she was arrested on December 28th and booked on 150 counts of "non-consensual disclosure of a private image."
She was reportedly released later that same day on a $75,000 bond. If that was the end of the story it would be wild enough, right? Well, it's not - according to the report, Pharis was arrested again last week (January 14th) when investigators discovered that a second unnamed person's nude photo was also included in the letters she mailed out!
She was once again booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Facility, and once again bonded out the same day on a $15,000 bond. No motive for the illegal photo-bombing has been released.
