A nurse in the western Turkish province of Aydın has been sentenced to 20 months in jail after threatening her married lover to expose their sex tape to his wife if he did not divorce.
Local daily Yeni Asır reported on Nov. 2 that the Criminal Court of First Instance in Aydın recently ruled on the case in which a 42-year-old businessman, who was married, sued a hospital nurse over blackmail, extortion and invasion of privacy.
According to court documents, the two had an extramarital affair and the nurse threatened the man that she would send their sex tape to his wife.
The wife, who saw messages between the two, divorced the man without seeing the tape. The angry man also broke up with the nurse after the incident.
The nurse, however, then changed her previous nature from blackmailing and gave the sex tape to her ex-boyfriend instead, who went up to the businessman and threatened to expose the hidden camera footage if he did not pay them 50,000 Turkish Liras.
The prosecutor had also alleged that the nurse’s husband had also helped her ex-boyfriend when threatening the businessman.
After the businessman filed a criminal complaint, the court sentenced the nurse to 20 months in jail, while her ex-boyfriend received 24 months for “violating privacy, extortion and blackmail.”
The nurse’s husband was acquitted due to a lack of evidence.
