Victim Gets Rewarded Money After Ex Lover Shares Her Distasteful Pictures

The ex allegedly sent images to her family, friends, and colleagues, according to the victim.

A jury awarded a Texas woman $1.2 billion on Friday after suffering through a year of having sexually explicit images of herself posted online by her ex-boyfriend, according to court documents obtained by KHOU 11.

The woman, who was identified as Jane Doe in the documents, filed the lawsuit in Harris County Civil Court in April of 2022. According to the court documents, the woman began dating Marques Jamal Jackson in 2016 before the pair officially broke up in October 2021. But the harassment began a year prior, the woman said, after the two had a “long and drawn out break up” in 2020 before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“[He’d] taken nonconsensual photographs, video and audio of her intimate moments,” attorney Bradford J. Gilde told KHOU 11. “And following the breakup, [he] decided to publish the materials online.”

Per court documents, Jackson had access to the camera system of Jane Doe’s mother’s home, as well as phone, social media, email, and other login information. Which the documents state he was using to post on various website’s including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Dropbox. And besides having “intimate visual material” from their time spent together, Jackson also allegedly stole money from the woman’s bank account and interfered with a possible loan application.

His behavior only escalated further after he became “delusional and paranoid” that Jane Doe was having a relationship with a mutual friend, Gilde claimed in the lawsuit. He sent links to the victim’s friends, family, and colleagues and even contacted her directly from various fake phone numbers.

“You will spend the rest of your life trying and failing to wipe yourself off the internet,” Jackson stated to Jane Doe as cited in court documents. Everyone you ever meet will hear the story and go looking. … Happy Hunting.”

The awarded sum includes $200 million for past and future mental anguish, which is categorized as compensatory damages, according to Houston’s Fox 26. And although it’s not likely that Jane Doe will ever receive the full $1.2 billion she’s owed, Gilde and his co-counsel, Jacob Schiffer, are still pleased with the verdict.

“It was about sending a message to the world,” Schiffer said. “Do not mess with Texas and do not mess with Texas women.”
