Ex-M&G revenge porn analyst faces 'almost inevitable' jail time

A former M&G analyst faces an ‘almost inevitable’ jail sentence after being found guilty of harassing a colleague who refused to give him her number.

Davide Buccheri was found guilty last week of uploading faked photos intended to resemble the victim to a porn site, before highlighting them to the woman’s bosses.

District Judge Richard Blake said that Buccheri was likely to face a custodial sentence when the court reconvenes for sentencing tomorrow.

He described Buccheri as a ‘manipulative’ man who had ‘set about to destroy’ his colleague after he had become ‘infatuated’ with her.

‘You conducted a quite wicked, calculated campaign against this young woman,’ he said. ‘It is shameful that I have not heard in evidence one expression of regret from you about what this young woman suffered.

‘She is going to have to live the rest of her professional life with the potential for the snigger by the water cooler, or in the lift, as she goes by. She doesn't deserve that; this young woman did absolutely nothing to bring about your disgraceful behaviour.’

The court had earlier heard that Buccheri had carried out a seven-month campaign of harassment against the woman after she joined M&G in September 2016.

Prosecutors said the pictures were uploaded between 15 April and 21 April last  year, and Buccheri then sent them on to the company’s HR department in a bid to cause her ‘distress and anxiety’. She later left the company to accept a post-graduate position.

Buccheri already pleaded not guilty to a charge of harassment without violence between 9 September 2016 and 29 May 2017 at the City of London Magistrate’s Court last October.
