FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A Texas man has pleaded guilty to seeking revenge on his ex-girlfriend by emailing out videos of them having sex.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that 28-year-old Philip Welch Ingram struck the deal Thursday in exchange for five years of deferred adjudication probation. He pleaded guilty to improper visual recording and breach of computer security. Both are felonies.

Ingram must undergo psychological treatment and pay a $500 fine. He can't live in Tarrant County or contact the ex-girlfriend as part of the agreement.

Police say Ingram hid a video recorder to film the couple. They say after the two broke up Ingram hacked into her email. He sent the videos to the woman's parents, friends and employer.
