A sexual partner of mine took a photograph of me performing a sex act on him without my consent or prior permission. I was not aware the photograph was being taken until the moment I saw the flash. At my request he appeared to delete the photograph when I asked him to, but the camera phone he used was out of my line of vision. I am also concerned that it may have been sent to iCloud, or that he has taken photographs of me before without my knowledge. Has he broken any laws? What legal rights would I theoretically have if I were to report this? I am UK based. In addition, if I were to go to the police, would the police be likely to look at his computer, camera, online activity etc to see if the image had been distributed or stored elsewhere?
Thanks Alice. No, not to my knowledge. I'm unsure what has happened to them, if anything.
Thanks. That clears up the issue of searching the computer. Was the act of taking the photograph without my consent and whilst performing a sex act itself against the law?
