Officer gets 30 days for threatening to release nudes of ex

February 28, 2018

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A former police officer who threatened to send nude photos of his former girlfriend to their colleagues on a Florida police force has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

News outlets report that 40-year-old James Krey was sentenced Wednesday. He was convicted last month of one count of extortion.

Authorities say Krey threatened to release the photos and a sex video in March 2015 unless his ex-girlfriend resigned from her position with the Davie Police Department.

The 26-year-old woman testified she met Krey when she was a rookie, and their rocky relationship lasted more than a year. In a series of text messages she read to jurors, Krey said he would send the pictures to the SWAT team and others unless she resigned and left the county.
