Marine Charged with Felony for Publicly Posting Intimate Images

A Marine of more than 20 years was charged in civilian court after posting intimate photos of a woman online, officials said.

Master Sgt. Theophilius Thomas, 38, an avionics chief currently assigned to Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 167 at Marine Corps Air Station New River in Jacksonville, N.C. is accused of posting one nude photo of the woman and six photos of her in underwear.

The photos were posted April 14, according to the arrest warrant which does not identify the website where the pictures surfaced.

“We are aware of the alleged charges against Master Sgt. Theophilus Thomas, and are working with NCIS and local authorities to ensure a thorough investigation,” said Capt. John Roberts, a spokesman for the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing. 

Police in Jacksonville arrested Thomas on April 20 after the woman told authorities about the photos, said Beth Purcell, a spokeswoman with the Jacksonville police.

Thomas has been charged with felony disclosure of private images, and his preliminary hearing is slated for May 11, officials said. He is currently free on $20,000 of unsecured bail.
