Leander man accused of posting video of girlfriend to Pornhub

Travis County

LEANDER, Texas (KXAN) — The Leander Police Department has arrested a man accused of posting a video of him and his girlfriend having sex to the porn website Pornhub.

According to the arrest warrant, Leander resident Angelo Florian, 18, allegedly recorded him and his girlfriend having sex without her knowledge and later posted the video online. 

The victim, a Leander High School student, told police that Florian told her immediately after the encounter that he had recorded it, and she told him it was only for him to see and no one else. The student told police that she found out the video had been posted online when classmates approached her in public and told her they had seen a sex video on Pornhub.

Police questioned two girls who saw the video and matched it with a description of what the victim said happened that night, and after simple Google search authorities located the video. According to police, the victim was clearly visible in the video, which has been removed.

Florian initially denied posting the video to police, but later confessed, saying he did it because the victim was being “annoying and really clingy,” according to the document filed in court. 

He is charged with publishing intimate visual material and his bond is set at $10,000.

Current Texas laws on revenge porn say that there must be an indication that intimate photos or videos were intended to be kept private and the victim must be identifiable. According to state law, whether or not the images were recorded consensually or without the victim’s knowledge, if they were meant to be kept private, it’s a crime to release them.
