A Verizon Wireless employee in Huntley was arrested after prosecutors said that he sent himself nude photos from a customer’s cellphone.
Justin D. Devine, 23, of the 6N block of Juniper Court in St. Charles, was charged with non-consensual dissemination of a sex image, a class 4 felony, the Kane County State‘s Attorney’s Office said.
Huntley police were called on September 19 to the Verizon Wireless Authorized Retailer, 12320 Route 47 in Huntley. The victim told police that she gave her cellphone to Devine, who is a store employee, so that he could help her fix it.
Prosecutors said that while Devine had the victim’s phone, he sent five nude photos of the victim from her phone to his own phone. When the victim confronted him about it, he denied any wrongdoing and she called police.
Devine surrendered to authorities on October 17 after a warrant was issued. A Kane County Judge set his bond at $15,000, which he has since posted the $1,500 bail and been released.
Devine is scheduled to appear in court again on November 27. If convicted, he faces a sentence of probation or between one and three years in prison.
