A magistrate has shamed a Dubbo disability support worker for his "perverted behaviour" after slapping a woman during a group sex encounter and sharing intimate images without consent.
According to court documents, earlier this year Anthony Wopenka, 23, and another man went to a woman's home to have a threesome.
Facts reveal Wopenka slapped the woman's face while he was having sex with her.
After the woman told him not to slap her, Wopenka told her "you like me treating you like a whore" and slapped her face again.
The woman grabbed his hand and said "don't slap me in the face" before the sex act ended, facts reveal.
Wopenka remained in the room and while the woman was having sex with another man, when she saw a camera flash.
The woman asked Wopenka to delete the photo and he said he would.
Afterwards, according to police, Wopenka posted a photograph of the woman in a group chat to brag about how he had his first "three-way".
The woman was approached by multiple people in June, who told her they had seen a video of her having sex.
After finding out about the video, Wopenka denied the allegations twice, before the woman reported it to police.
Court documents revealed police said Wopenka worked for disability service provider Westhaven and "hold grave concerns for the welfare of these vulnerable residents as they are non-verbal and high dependent".
Wopenka was convicted of common assault and two counts of intentionally recording and distributing intimate images without consent, when he failed to appear at Dubbo Local Court on October 14. He did not change his pleas.
At sentencing on Wednesday, Wopenka's defence told the court at the time of the offence he had been going through a break-up, but had since been to see a counsellor.
His defence lawyer argued the images were shared with a closed group as opposed to being shared openly, and now Wopenka was at risk of losing his job.
Magistrate Phillip Stewart said Wopenka had caused the woman "gross humiliation" and ongoing suffering as the images were now in the public domain.
"How do you retrieve that material once it's out there?," Magistrate Stewart asked.
"The damage is not only done, it's sustained, it's ongoing."
"The conduct is perverted ... it's deviant behaviour, it's absolutely shameful."
While Magistrate Stewart took into account Wopenka's lack of criminal record and his remorse, he sentenced him to a 12-month intensive corrections order, and ordered to undertake psycho-sexual counselling.
Wopenka was also placed on a community corrections order for 12 months for assaulting the woman.
"Do not ever carry on like this again," Magistrate Stewart said.
"If you don't understand how relationships work, don't enter into one."
