A MAN was jailed for eight weeks on Tuesday for threatening to circulate his colleague’s nude photos through e-mail if his demands were not met.The 41-year-old admitted to criminal intimidation by sending the 38-year-old woman an anonymous e-mail last Nov 21.

They were then colleagues in a law firm.

A district court heard that the woman, a secretary, received an e-mail from one ‘Marcus Tan’ that day asking her to be his friend and to reply to him or he would use her nude photos to make sex videos and circulate them.

The victim had been receiving e-mails from ‘Marcus Tan’ since Apr last year, some of which had attachments of edited and superimposed photos of her in sexy poses.

She had no idea who the sender was but police investigation showed that the accused was the culprit.

He was arrested on Jan 17.

Pleading for leniency, the accused said he did not know why he did it and that he was depressed and troubled at the time.
