Police officer faces charges for sending nudes of own wife to co-workers

An officer for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is facing misdemeanor charges after he was accused of sharing nude pictures of his own wife, who is also a fellow officer, with their co-workers.

According to a criminal complaint filed in a Los Angeles superior court as carried by Los Angeles Times, 45-year-old Brady Lamas has been charged with six counts of disorderly conduct after he allegedly sent private and sexually explicit photos of his own spouse for their colleagues to feast their eyes on. 

The charges also stretch towards the men whom he shared the pictures with.

Based on an application for a restraining order against Lamas, the gross act was discovered by his wife on Jan. 30 after she saw her nude photos sent in a group chat on his phone, which her husband started distributing on Dec. 29 last year.

She recounted, "As I continued scrolling through the messages, I observed nude photos of me that were sent to that same unknown man. I did not know the photos were taken of me and did not give my consent for any photos of me to be shared with anyone."

Lamas' wife shared that she felt "frozen and in fear," and worried about how her husband would react if he found out that she knew about his "horrible, disturbing acts."

In the document, she further alleged that there was an incident where Lamas snapped pictures of her naked body during a time where she had breast augmentation surgery and sent these to other men as "before and after pics."

Because of this, some of her male colleagues who received the photos began to stare at her "intently" and made comments such as, "Brady is a lucky man" and "He doesn’t know how good he has it."

Once she found out the truth, Lamas' wife reported it to her supervisor and filed a report to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

She stressed that she was devasted about her husband's actions as it felt like he was a predator who preyed on her dignity.

“What is worse is this humiliation will keep repeating, perhaps forever, because the private pictures and graphic videos are now in the hands of strangers and multiple co-workers at LAPD,” she wrote.

A spokesperson for the LAPD said on Dec. 14 that investigations around Lamas had started since January and that they are "troubled by the officer’s alleged off-duty conduct which does not reflect the values of the Los Angeles Police Department."

The department is currently working with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the District Attorney’s Office regarding the issue. Lamas is set to be arraigned next week.
