THE first person charged under Western Australia’s revenge porn laws has admitted creating social media pages in his ex-girlfriend’s name and posting intimate photographs of her.

Mitchell Joseph Brindley, 24, posted images on Instagram after they broke up and when the profile was taken down, he created more.

Brindley faced Fremantle Magistrates Court on Tuesday where he pleaded guilty to distributing an intimate image of another without consent in April.

His bail was renewed and a pre-sentence and psychological report have been ordered ahead of sentencing on July 22.
