A 44-year-old old man who admitted to sending intimate images in a case of revenge porn has been sentenced to prison.

Michael Hart previously pleaded guilty to four counts of violation of a domestic violence court order, stalking, cyberstalking and six counts of disclosing intimate images.

Hart was sentenced to a seven-year drug offender sentencing alternative under which he is eligible for early release into treatment after serving half of his sentence.

The victim was Hart’s ex-girlfriend.

Hart was released from Pierce County Jail on Dec. 4, 2015 after serving time for charges including assault, harassment and violation of a contact order.

That day, prosecutors say, the victim’s daughters started getting emails from an account associated with Hart, who sent the images to everyone in the victim’s contact list.
