MMA fighter Webster sentenced for revenge porn

by
Paul Webster

Paul Webster, 36, an MMA fighter, of Welwyn Garden City, pled guilty to maliciously distributing sexual images of his ex-partner, of Havering, to members of her family whilst making threats. He was sentenced to 42 weeks imprisonment, suspended for 2 years.

Paul Webster also has 16 previous convictions for 25 offences, and some relate to assaults on previous partners.

When the victim ended their relationship, Webster sent a private, sexual image to one of her family members and said he would send the same to another one.

In a victim personal statement, Webster’s ex said: “He tormented me with these images and videos, sometimes claiming that he had deleted them, and after me thanking him and crying with relief then later sending me a message laughing at me and displaying that he still had them in his possession.”

“He gradually broke down my mental state over a period of time until a point that I felt so much shame about myself that I felt I wasn’t worthy of anything or anyone. That the world would be a better place if I were no longer in it.”

Webster even threatened he would “batter” one of her relatives. All of this left her deeply distressed, and a ‘shadow’ of her former self.

After he pleaded guilty, his ex said: “My hope is that his conviction prevents even just one more person from being subjected to the horror that I went through, and continue to go through.”

She says the Webster’s actions will follow her for the rest of her life, and that the sentence does not truly capture the gravity of his actions.
