CHANDLER, Ariz. — A woman was arrested on charges of unlawful distribution of nude images and harassment when she allegedly taped nude photos of her ex-boyfriend on a fence outside his kids’ elementary school, according to court documents.
On Sept. 12, several naked pictures were reported at Hull Elementary in Chandler.
According to court docs, the pictures were of a person standing nude where a person would be able to know who was in the picture, which showed genitalia. The pictures were taped to the inside of the fence so anyone inside the fence, meaning children and school employees could see them.
One of the photos was posted on the fence line at a park adjacent to the school. Two girls saw it and reported it. The school took it down and notified police as well as the parents of the students who saw it.
The man in the photos told police the only person he sent the photos to was his ex-girlfriend, Deborah Britton.
He attempted to call Britton, but she hung up on him, court docs say.
Britton, 55, was arrested on an unrelated warrant Nov. 14. According to court docs, a detective spoke to her about the school incident and she said there was no reason her fingerprints would be on the photos because she didn’t post them.
After getting the photos tested for prints, lab results came in Dec. 11 and showed that her fingerprint was found on one of the photos, court docs said.
After contacting Britton via phone, the detective told her she needed to turn herself in. Britton still denied involvement, but said she would call the detective back within 24 hours.
Britton turned herself in at the Chandler Police Department on Dec. 18.
