Chief Deputy Scott Hall of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office said it was not clear whether Lexie Ann McLeod, 21, of Littleton, and Nicole Lynn Blanton, 27, of Roanoke Rapids, allegedly posted the images directly onto the victim’s timeline or whether they were sent via private message. The photos were reportedly of the victim, he said.
Motivation was not clear, Hall said.
Their arrests stem from a November 23 investigation by Deputy Comeaux around 2:30 a.m. when the victim reported pornographic images were posted on their Facebook page.
Investigation led to charges of felony disseminate obscenity, disclosure of private images and felony conspiracy against both women, who have December 20 court dates.
Lieutenant Perry Parks with the Roanoke Rapids Police Department assisted with the arrest of Blanton.
