"Tokyo man accused of stealing Facebook underwear photos"

From The Japan Times, 11/10/15:

A Tokyo man accused of accessing a woman’s Facebook account and allegedly downloading pictures of her in her underwear has been arrested.

In what is being reported as Japan’s first such arrest, Ryosuke Koga, 25, allegedly logged into the victim’s Facebook account 17 times between January and March, a Metropolitan Police Department spokesman said.

The police quoted Koga as saying he committed the crime “to fulfill my sexual desire.”

Investigators also found that Koga, an employee of communications and office equipment distributor Hikari Tsushin Inc., allegedly had approximately 770 Facebook and iCloud IDs and passwords. Of these, they have identified users of 140 accounts, all but one of whom are women. They are trying to determine how he obtained the information.

Koga could face up to three years in prison or a fine of up to ¥1 million, the police spokesman said without providing further details.

The police found the collection of ID data and passwords when they raided Koga’s house, the Mainichi Shimbun said.

Why would someone put pictures of themselves in their underwear on Facebook? Another reminder that once it's on the internet, it's out of your control...
