A cheating cop’s husband hacked her phone and tricked her ex-lover into revenge porn.
Constable Nicole Boyd had an affair with Senior Constable Kevin Riboldi for three months after she started working at the Wyong police station in 2018.
But her husband Matthew Boyd discovered their secret conversations by hacking her SnapChat, prompting police to end their affair in December 2018.
Boyd also downloaded ‘intimate videos’ from the couple and sent a screenshot to his wife posing as Mister Ribolid, prompting his wife to sign an AVO against her former lover.
However, police eventually tracked the email to Boyd, accusing him of eight crimes.
He pleaded guilty to four of those crimes before a local court in Wyong this week The Daily Telegraph.

During her affair, Ms. Boyd and Mr. Riboldi sent each other messages, videos, and photos on Snapchat, WhatsApp, and Keepsafe, according to an agreed statement of fact shown in court.
The statement also detailed how on November 27, 2018, the couple agreed to record two ‘intimate videos’ together in the guest bedroom of the Boyd house.
But Boyd discovered his wife’s affair by hacking into her Snapchat account to read her private conversations with Mr. Riboldi.
Mr. Riboldi woke up on December 26, 2018 to find that Ms. Boyd had tried to call and message him at night, including WhatsApp texts around 4am.
“Don’t write back, but he (her husband) found out. He hacked my Snapchat and read everything. I told him we didn’t sleep together, ”she wrote.
Mrs. Boyd and Mr. Riboldi met later that day at Charlestown Shopping Center to discuss their affair.
Mr. Riboldi encouraged Mrs. Boyd to sign an AVO against her husband, with whom she shares a young daughter.

Ms. Boyd said she wanted to leave her husband and be with Mr. Riboldi during messages between the two on the same day.
But she ended her relationship with Mr. Riboldi at 10:45 am via WhatsApp.
“I’m sorry Kev, I’m ending our relationship tonight…. If you really love me, you respect my decision and don’t contact me again. I spoke to Matt and told him we slept together, ”she wrote.
Ms. Boyd’s husband sent a threatening Facebook message to Mr. Riboldi the next day, but he only read it months later when he installed Facebook Messenger.
The scorned husband also left two gross voicemails on Mr. Riboldi’s mobile number on January 1, 2019, and a threatening message the following day.
Over the next few days, Boyd hacked his wife’s KeepSafe account and changed her password so that he could download the intimate videos she recorded with Mr. Riboldi two months earlier.
He created a fake Gmail account similar to Mr. Riboldi’s email and sent his wife the intimate videos framing her former lover.
The email was titled “enjoy” and was supposed to look like it had been forwarded a few times to suggest that Mr. Riboldi shared the video with several people.
Ms. Boyd believed that Mr. Riboldi sent the videos to her husband to harass her, prompting her to call her sergeant and file an AVO against her colleague.
Mr. Riboldi was shocked when he was hit by an AVO and said he was set up – but was fired of his duties on January 7, 2019.

Hacker husband Boyd said he recognized Ms. Boyd from her Chinese tattoos when he watched the videos during a police interview.
“The male was sitting on a bed and her face was between his legs,” he told the police.
However, the police eventually traced the email account to Boyd, accusing him of investigating false allegations and knowingly providing misleading information about police behavior.
Mr. Riboldi was acquitted of all wrongdoing and the AVO against him was withdrawn on July 15 last year.
This week, Boyd pleaded in court to investigate false allegations, hack his wife’s social media accounts, and knowingly provide misleading information about police behavior and harassment.
Four allegations of access to limited data on a computer and one allegation of intentionally distributing an image without permission were dropped and dismissed.
Boyd is sentenced on July 21.
