MORRISTOWN, N.J. — A retired sheriff’s official was sentenced to 150 hours of community service and five years probation for posting sexually explicit photographs of two women on adult sites.

According to a report in the Newark Star-Ledger, John Kinnecom, 57, pleaded guilty in June of invasion of privacy and harassment. He harassed a second victim, claiming during a mental evaluation he committed the crimes because of a compulsion.

"He is a sick, evil and disgusting pervert,'' wrote one of the women. She said the photographs can't be taken down off some and she fears for her reputation.

There is "no end in sight when this crime against me will end,'' she wrote.

"You have sentenced two innocent victims to a life of constant embarrassment,'' Superior Court Judge Thomas V. Manahan told Kinnecom. "That was cruel.''
