Court Postpones Jail for Greek TV Host Posting Partner Graphic Videos

November 21, 2023

ATHENS – Greek TV show co-host Stathis Panagiotopoulos was sentenced to five years in prison for putting graphic photos of his former partner online without her consent but stayed the order until the case goes to an appeals court.

The verdict came from a Three-Member Misdemeanor Appeals Court of Thessaloniki after the court accepted a prosecutor’s request to make the offense a felony instead of a misdemeanor, stating he intended to harm the victim.

No mitigating factors were found and while he awaits the next step Panagitopolos is subject to other measures including a travel ban, mandatory check-ins at a police station, and a bail requirement of 10,000 euros ($10,946.)

The trial was held privately at the victim’s request with the accused said to have admitted what he did but arguing he didn’t mean to cause harm and that he acted out of passion and a diagnosed mental illness.

The case reached the court after successive appeals against the prior judgment of the Misdemeanor Court which led the prosecutor to add there were repeated violations of the victim’s personal data.
