Pictures of her were text to a bunch of ppl and he used group chat so I got the numbers and texted them one was a neighbor and one replied he did it to her too.....now he is harassing you and I've told him to back off how do we handle this
In WA, distributing sexually explicit images of someone without that person's consent is a crime. Your wife can report the sender to the police.
On another hand, if she cannot tell whether the images are of her, perhaps they are not of her.
Whether there are violations of the sexually explicit images, your wife almost certainly can get a court order prohibit the sender from having any contact with her.
Your wife can review the specific facts with her attorney to find out her legal options.
"... how do we handle this?"
What does your wife want to do about it? Or does she even care?
