A Delaware County man is facing multiple charges after posting a sex tape of him and an ex-girlfriend on the Internet following their breakup, according county prosecutors.
Newtown Square resident Christopher Thomas Scott is blaming a heart break for his lapse in judgment, according to the Delaware County Daily Times
Scott was arrested on Monday and charged with selling, designing and producing obscene materials, harassment and other charges after he allegedly secretly posted a video of consensual sex between him and his former girlfriend, according to police.
Scott’s video, which was shot about two years ago, was discovered by the 24-year-old victim’s employer. She was promptly asked to resign, according to an affidavit obtained by NBC Philadelphia.
"The victim stated that many people she knows found out about the video and she has been getting harassed ever since," according to the affidavit. The victim also, "started receiving derogatory postings to her Facebook, which has since been deleted."

The victim approached Scott in his Aronimink Drive home in September and saw the Macbook that he had allegedly used to post the video, according to court papers.
The victim contacted police. In October police served a search warrant on Scott's home. There, Scott made a statement claiming that about 11 months ago he posted the video of the couple having sex in a dorm room at Stevenson College (Md.) because he was upset over their breakup, the affidavit said.
He told police that he removed the video after two days and attempted to have it removed from other sites, according to the affidavit.
"He admitted he was sorry for posting the video without the consent or knowledge of the victim," the affidavit said.
Police confiscated his computer and were able to recover the pornographic video, which Scott had reportedly deleted some weeks earlier.
While searching the computer police also found at least one image of child pornography, according to court papers.
While at the home, they also discovered marijuana, a bong and a pipe, police said.
Police also charged Scott with drug possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
