A Georgia teen’s ex-boyfriend reportedly leaked a nude video of her via an online messaging app– but she was the one who ended up in handcuffs.

Xavier Jones, 18, says her ex-boyfriend posted a video and photos of her in a compromising and intimate nature on the popular group chat app Kik.  When she found him at school, the teen poured her drink on him before cursing him out.

A teacher then led Jones to the principal’s office, where according to her mother she was suspended for a day.  The girl and her mother were later called back to school where she was arrested.

“They told me to stand up and he put the handcuffs on me,” said the girl. “Then I started shaking and crying.”

Lawyers and advocates for Jones were so shocked at her treatment they decided to represent her for free.

“(It’s wrong) to put a young girl in handcuffs over defending herself and standing up for being violated,” said attorney L. Chris Stewart.

“I characterize it as the victim getting victimized, and that’s exactly what happened in this case,” said attorney Gerald Griggs.

But authorities say that the only crime that they saw being committed was in Jones’ actions, which disrupted school proceedings.

“It drew a large crowd of students and it took a large number of the schools staff to break the crowd up, break the fight up and to restore order,” said Deputy Police Chief Rodney Riggs.
Police records say a witness alleged she threw a bottle of water on a male student and “threatened to kill him.”  Although the boy who posted the photos and video admitted to having them, the compromising photos were deleted in the group chat before police could take evidence.  He hasn’t faced charges.  Meanwhile Jones’ attorney says she faces a misdemeanor charge punishable by up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.  They want all criminal charges dropped.
“Clean her record so she can go on to college and do great things,” Griggs said.
