Florida deputy fired for posting “revenge porn” of ex-girlfriend online

A Collier County sheriff’s deputy was fired for posting revenge porn of his ex-girlfriend online.

More than a year ago, Rebekah Wells told police that one of their own threatened her in a text message that he’d share nude photos of her online.

Wells had apparently shown the photos to her ex, Cpl. Vito Celiberti six years ago, when she was filing a report about another ex-boyfriend.

Wells’ lawyer told ABC7 that public officials who abuse their authority and position need to be punished. A letter obtained by the news station this week showed that Celiberti lied during an investigation into his misconduct.

Under Florida law, it’s illegal to post sexually explicit photos or videos of your ex without their permission.

The deputy in this case was also accused of misusing the “David” system, a program that allows law enforcement officers to look up an individual’s personal information.

The system is reportedly sometimes abused by officers trying to find out about potential love interests or ex-girlfriends.

  1. While the initial allegations were false and were not even being pursued until an ulterior agenda was established, your article is false on top of the already previous falsehoods stating that over a year ago (leading readers to believe that it had occurred sometime in 2016 or 2015, the deputy threatened her by text. Her actual allegation was that he stated he would compare pictures and video with her and her boyfriend back in 2012. You may want to do a little research and have some journalistic integrity. You may also want to read the complete file before documenting anything else as even your information on the DAVID is inaccurate.
