The first person in Grenada to be charged for violating a section of the Electronic Crimes Act has been fined EC$35 000.
Court records state that if Yurber Phillip fails to pay, he will be sent to prison for 18 months.
It is reported that Phillip, age 25, published nude photos of a woman with whom he had an intimate relationship on a social media platform.
The legislation states that “published” means the reproduction of the image in the printed or electronic form and making it available for public.
Phillip first appeared at St. George’s Magistrate Court on August 28 and was placed on bail.
He was fined on October 5, after pleading guilty to the offense.
The maximum fine for this offense is EC$250 000.
