TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A Tallahassee man is facing charges after posting a sexually explicit image and video of a victim to social media.

Alvin E. Holloway Jr., 37, was arrested Wednesday and booked into the Leon County Detention Center. He remained jailed Thursday. 

Holloway posted the video and explicit image on his Instagram page following his break up with the victim, according to a court complaint.

Before Holloway published the items, on the morning of Sept. 27, 2017, he had gone through the victim's cell phone and found the sexually explicit video and a picture.

Confronting the victim about them, he demanded the name of the receiver. After an argument, Holloway retrieved his belongings and moved out of the residence.

Later that day, a friend of the victim phoned to say the video and picture had been posted to Holloway's Instagram page and tagged with the victim's username.

The victim screenshot both posts and reported the posts to Instagram, and they were soon removed.

Although neither the approximately 20-second long video nor the picture showed the victim's face, the victim felt that the tagging would identify the victim to people.

In October 2017, the victim came to the Tallahassee Police Department and consented to a download of the victim's cell phone that provided screenshots of the picture and video.

The victim desired to pursue criminal charges for sexual cyberharassment, a first degree misdemeanor.

On Dec. 4, 2017, Holloway admitted to the TPD investigator that he posted the video with the victim's name tagged underneath, the court document said, but stated it was not malicious.
