A young man and a woman have landed in the Ras Al Khaimah criminal court for exchanging their nude pictures and having consensual sex out of wedlock.

The 19-year-old man threatened to defame the 20-year-old woman by posting her nude pictures on social media if she severed her ties with him.

The woman's mother lodged a complaint against him before the RAK Police. The cops immediately detained the suspect.

He was charged with exchanging nude photos with the woman when she was still a minor and trespassing her father's house.

He was also accused of having consensual sex with her out of wedlock and threatening to defame her if she married another man.

The public prosecution also charged the woman with exchanging her nude pictures with the suspect, having consensual sex with him out of wedlock and assisting him to trespass her father's house.

The man denied threatening to post the woman's pictures on social media.

He admitted to trespassing her father's house with her help, alleging that the woman was the one who started sending him her nude pictures on WhatsApp and told him that he could do the same.

The defendant told the court that he did have sex with the woman when she was still a minor with her consent on their first date, after which she asked him for another date.

The woman admitted to all the charges pressed against her.

The case was adjourned until Jan. 24 so that the woman's defense lawyer has enough time to read the case file and prepare his pleading.
