Ex-Davie Police Officer Gets 30 Days for Threatening to Release Nudes of Ex

A former police officer who threatened to send nude photos of his former girlfriend to their colleagues on the Davie Police force has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

News outlets report that 40-year-old James Krey was sentenced Wednesday. He was convicted last month of one count of extortion.

Authorities say Krey, who had been with the department since 2004, threatened to release the photos and a sex video in March 2015 unless his ex-girlfriend resigned from her position with the Davie Police Department.

The 26-year-old woman testified she met Krey when she was a rookie, and their rocky relationship lasted more than a year. In a series of text messages she read to jurors, Krey said he would send the pictures to the SWAT team and others unless she resigned and left the county.

Krey resigned from his job in January, officials said.
