A 20-year-old Palm Coast man has been charged with transmission of child pornography for allegedly posting explicit "revenge porn" photos of his 17-year-old ex-girfriend on Snapchat and Instagram, according to a Flagler County Sheriff's Office report.

Au'qoin Neeley had dated the victim for approximately a year, the victim told deputies, before she broke up with him.

But he continued messaging and calling her after she'd asked him to stop and blocked him on her phone, according to the report.

He found still other ways to harass her, and, on Nov. 30, used an app to send her an expletive-laden message threatening to post explicit photos of her on social media.

He then posted multiple sexually explicit photos and video of her, and of her engaged in sexual activity with him, on Instagram and Snapchat, according to the report.

Because she'd blocked him on her phone, the victim didn't know what he'd done until she started getting calls from her friends eh'd seen the material.

She took screen shots of the images and told deputies that she wanted to pursue charges against him. 

When deputies interviewed Neeley, he acknowledged knowing that the victim was 17 years old. He also acknowledged posting the explicit material and leaving it up for 11 hours, after which he removed it because "he knew it was wrong of him," according to the report.

He completed a sworn statement verifying his Instagram and Snapchat display names — the ones that had been used to post the material.

He said he wanted to be cooperative with the investigation, told deputies that he had similar sexual images and videos of the victim on his phone, and gave deputies the code to unlock it.

He also repeatedly told deputies that he was a very popular person with a lot of friends.

Deputies charged him with sexual cyber harassment and transmission of child pornography, according to the report.
