SAN RAFAEL, Calif. » A former Northern California RadioShack employee was charged with stealing revealing photos from the smartphone of a woman who had brought in the device to have its cracked screen fixed.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that 24-year-old Jose Robert Miranda of Richmond, California did not enter a plea when he appeared Monday in a Marin County court on a felony charge of theft and copying computer data.
The San Francisco woman’s attorney, Timothy Osborn says the woman called police after realizing that 17 "extremely revealing and nude pictures" she had taken of herself were texted from her phone to an unfamiliar number. He said the texts were made when her phone was at RadioShack. RadioShack acknowledged in a statement that the charges are "very serious" and that the company is cooperating with authorities.
