Description
A VENGEFUL Coventry man dumped by his ex-lover blackmailed her out of her money with threats of posting on the internet a video of them having sex.

Nitin Patria’s ‘absolutely merciless’ revenge porn threats terrified his victim so much that she paid him hundreds of pounds to meet his demands.

The video may not even have existed but he continued making more threats demanding even more payments, a court heard.

Patria, aged 22, of Clara Road, Stoke, Coventry, was jailed for two years and eight months after pleading guilty at Warwick Crown Court to four charges of blackmail.

A court heard new laws since April covering revenge porn carried a maxium two-year sentence, but the blackmail and ‘menaces’ made this even more serious.
