(CBS) CLIFTON Police say Neftali Soto sent “intimate photos” of his ex-girlfriend to students at the Christopher Columbus Middle School in Clifton, NJ where she’s a teacher.
They say the 26-year-old did it by setting up a sham account on MySpace.Com, pretending to be the teacher.
“They were intimate photos they took on vacation, the kind lovers would take in this digital age,” said Joseph Del Russo, Passaic County’s Assistant Prosecutor.
Authorities say Soto stole the photos from his ex’s computer because he was angry over their breakup.
Then, according to investigators, he used MySpace’s search engine to identify students at the school.
“When a mom found out, she forwarded the pictures to her own account and she was able to freeze time.” Del Russo said.
That’s how investigators say they were able to link the photos to Soto’s computer.
MySpace had the usual non-answer…
When asked for comment about this story, MySpace.Com said they have all kinds of safety nets to make sure inappropriate material doesn’t make it on the site.
Apparently, their safety net has Buick sized holes in it.
