Former New York Jets player Jermaine Cunningham pleaded guilty Wednesday to spreading sexual photos of his ex-girlfriend on social media.

Cunningham, 26, admitted to posting suggestive photos of his former flame without her consent and “tagged” her on Instagram, according to NJ.com. Under the New Jersey law, which was one of the first “revenge porn” statues in the nation, it is illegal to distribute sexual images without the subject’s consent.

The Bronx-born linebacker was arrested last year after police responded to a domestic violence complaint. He also pled guilty to third-degree invasion of privacy and gun charges as part of a plea deal that allows Cunningham to serve probation instead of going to court.

The length of probation will be determined in late June.
