Belfast man accused of disclosing a woman's 'private sexual photographs'

By Paul Higgins

A Belfast man has appeared in court accused of disclosing a woman's "private sexual photographs".

John Paul McCusker is charged with disclosing the image without her consent "and with the intention of causing her distress" on February 25. The 34-year-old is also accused of "pursuing a course of conduct which amounted to the harassment" of the same woman two days later.

A prosecuting lawyer told Antrim Magistrates Court yesterday the "full file is still outstanding" and that while there had been a request for his mobile phone to be forensically examined, "it will be the end of May before that's completed".

McCusker's solicitor revealed he was unemployed and asked if he could be excused from attending on the next occasion as he had to travel from his home at Colinmill in Dunmurry.

Adjourning the case to May 30, Deputy District Judge Peter Prenter refused the request.
