Gay porn actor and reality TV star found guilty of revenge porn

Kurtis Peters-Hartman was found guilty of revenge porn

Kurtis Peters-Hartman, who appeared on MTV show Ex on the Beach, was found guilty of publishing and circulating revenge porn.

The 22-year-old former gay porn actor appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court in London on 21 May to hear his verdict.

A judge gave him a 16-week sentence, suspended for 18 months. He also must perform 120 hours of community service. Finally, he owes £620 in court fees and £115 to the victim.

Hartman continues to deny the charge. He previously told the Daily Star Online: ‘I have not been charged regarding the revenge porn as my phone was hacked and this is currently still under investigation so I am unable to discuss anymore at this present time due to confidentiality.’

An argument on Twitter

Prosecutor Sabrina Farhan explained in court how Hartman posted a nude photo of his ex on Twitter.

The pair got into an argument on Twitter. During the course of it, Hartman texted his ex that unless she deleted her tweets, his next post would ‘ruin her’.

The photo he posted showed his ex’s face clearly. It was deleted two hours later. His Twitter has over 3,000 followers.
