    At Bulford Military Court, Wiltshire, AS Pottage was locked up for 120 days after pleading guilty to one charge of disgraceful conduct of an indecent kind.

    A judge described it as ‘a gross breach of trust between you and your colleague who was put in an extremely humiliating and difficult situation’.

    William Peters, 기소, told the hearing: ‘A party was held in the 45-man male mess on HMS Portland and they were joined at an early stage by the females from the female mess.

    ‘Most were drinking and dancing and, after an hour or so, AS Pottage and one of the females left and had sex.

    ‘Whilst standing behind her, AS Pottage made a short film of it on his phone and in this footage the female could be seen.

    ‘He then went back down to the male mess and showed the short footage to others.

    ‘He told one person he had ‘sh****dthe female and ‘had the video to prove it’.

    ‘One colleague believed he was showing the video for bragging rights. The others told him to delete it, 그가 한.

    Pottage accepted he made the video and showed it to other people, but claimed it was unintentional

    ‘The video lasted for ten seconds and, because it was filmed on Snapchat, deleted itself. He didn’t send it to anyone and it can’t be recovered.

    The court heard when he was interviewed by military police AS Pottage accepted he had made the video and showed it to other people, but said he did not do this deliberately as it just ‘happened to be on his phone when he opened it’.

    Following the investigation he was removed from HMS Portland, which is a Type 23 ‘Duke-classfrigate based at HMNB Devonport in Plymouth, 데본.

    Michael Green, 방어, said AS Pottage was the fourth generation of his family to serve in the Royal Navy and asked the court to bear in mind his ‘young ageat the time of the offence.

    Sentencing the sailor, Judge Advocate Alistair McGrigor said: ‘You consumed alcohol, you and a female trainee left to have sexual intercourse.

    ‘During sexual intercourse you filmed a short clip of you having sex with her from behind without her knowledge.

    ‘You returned to the mess and you decided to brag about what had taken place. No doubt your judgement was impaired by alcohol.

    ‘Your bragging as to what was a private act was bound to get out and did so very quickly among naval colleagues.

    ‘This was a gross breach of trust between you and your colleague who was put in an extremely humiliating and difficult situation.

    ‘Your actions fell far below the proper standards of decency required in the services.
