Davie cop who threatened ex-girlfriend with distributing nude photos sentenced to prison

DAVIE, FLA. (WSVN) - A Davie Police officer has been sentenced to time in prison after threatening to send his ex-girlfriend’s nude photos and a sex tape to colleagues.

Back in 2015, police said officer James Krey threatened to send the photos and video to other officers unless his ex-girlfriend agreed to resign her position with Davie Police.

“Mr. Krey made the choice to torment me for hours withholding those images over my head to manipulate me,” said victim Brittany Assam.

“I made a very bad decision and found myself on the other side of that,” Krey said in court.

A judge found Krey guilty of extortion during a February court hearing and on Wednesday morning, he was sentenced to 30 days in prison and three years of probation.

Krey initially faced a maximum prison sentence of 15 years.
