SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) – A former student at the University of Puerto Rico has been sentenced to more than a year in prison after authorities accused him of breaking into women’s Snapchat accounts and sharing their nude photos with others.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Thursday that Iván Santell-Velázquez pleaded guilty in July to cyberstalking as part of a plea deal. A judge on Wednesday ordered him to 13 months in prison and two years of supervised release.
Santell-Velázquez was also accused of hacking into multiple university email accounts and targeting 15 women from 2019 to 2021.
Authorities said Santell-Vázquez sent the nude photos to other people, who then published them online.
