Texas Man Who Emailed Secret Videos of Ex As “Revenge Porn” Gets Off On Probation

Philip Welch Ingram struck the deal Thursday in exchange for five years of deferred adjudication probation…The victim previously told the Star-Telegram that on the night before the emails were sent out, Ingram had sent her several disturbing text messages, falsely accusing her of being out with another man.

He then threatened to email out videos of the couple engaged in sexual acts and sent her excerpts of the videos to prove he had them.

She said his last message, ‘Have a good morning,’ was sent about 2 am on May 30, 2013, as she slept…When the woman woke, Ingram had already hacked into the woman’s email, sending the explicit videos to more than 100 of the woman’s contacts – including her parents, friends, employer, and professional associates.
