A Sparwood man could be facing criminal charges after he posted naked pictures of a female friend on Facebook.

The Fernie woman called the RCMP in the early hours of the morning on April 18 to complain that she had found the pictures on the social networking website.

The photos have now been removed from the site, but police are considering obtaining a search warrant to find the history of the man’s profile from Facebook administrators.

“It is not something we have done before here in the Elk Valley, but it is quite possible we might have to deal with the website administrators and get them to produce records from their archives,” said Sgt. Dave Dubnyk from the Elk Valley RCMP.

“We need to prove criminal intent, because it is possible that the woman gave permission for the photos to be published. We have to look into all possibilities before progressing with criminal charges.”

The man could face charges under 163 of the Canadian Criminal Code, called “corrupting morals,” which prevents the circulation of obscene pictures.
