A DeKalb County police officer is facing charges after allegedly posting nude photos of an Atlanta officer to Instagram and Snapchat.
Audrey Francisquin, 24, of Lithonia was identified as the suspect after the victim went to DeKalb police and said someone had accessed her social media accounts. A police report released this week said the victim received messages from Francisquin saying things along the lines of “you’re going to learn.”
Friends called the victim saying her nude images were posted for all to see.
That a police officer allegedly fell victim to the crime, particularly at the hands of another officer, speaks to the prevalence of such occurrences today. In 2014 Georgia legislators passed the so-called anti-'revenge porn' bill after seeing a rise in such crimes.
The Atlanta officer who’s allegedly the victim in this case said she didn’t even know why it happened.
“(The victim) is unaware of where this behavior came from and says she talked to this (woman) several days prior and everything was okay,” the report said.
The report calls the two women “acquaintances.”
The victim believed the suspect found a way to download the nude images from the victim’s phone.
Francisquin spent three days in jail and was released on $5,000 bond Saturday. She faces charges of invasion of privacy by computer, computer trespassing and explicit transmissions, police said.
Maj. Stephen Fore, DeKalb police spokesman, said Francisquin, who was hired on April 11, is on administrative leave pending the investigation.
“It was brought to the department’s attention. We took it seriously and investigated,” he said.
