A woman has been left humiliated after two of her former friends viciously shared a video and images of her having sex in a Facebook group chat – which was seen by strangers as well as her own mum and younger brother.

Lauren Fowler, 20, and Aimee Lawson, 31, had reportedly had a falling out with the victim and wanted to get revenge, a court heard on Wednesday (January 26).

The pair added her to a Facebook group chat which was included her mum, brother, ex-partner's family and people she didn't know – before posting a graphic video and photos of her having sex, Hull Live reports.

Prosecuting, Miss Markham said the offence took place between May 8 and May 9, 2021.

She said: "The victim was added into the chat and was called a s*** and w*** and received threats that the women would attend her address if she didn't reply."

The victim said in a personal statement: "I feel embarrassed, humiliated and angry.

"I believe this is going to cause further problems in the future."

She claimed she was shocked Fowler "still had those pictures" and was even "more shocked" that Lawson also had access to them.

The two offenders, from Hull, both pleaded guilty to disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress.

In mitigation, Lawson's solicitor referenced her early guilty plea and said he didn't think it was "a point of contention that perhaps Miss Lawson forms the lesser part in this matter".

The solicitor acting for Fowler said she accepted "she should not have done it".

Both defendants were on bail at the time for common assault, which they have received community orders for.

Presiding chair magistrates Mr Coates said the case would proceed to Hull Crown Court on February 23.

The magistrates said they did not feel they had sufficient sentencing powers based on what they had heard.

Both women were granted unconditional bail.
