Earlier today, Dylan Bendix, a 20-year-old St. Paul resident, was sentenced for publishing nude pics of his ex-girlfriend online.

In arguing on behalf of his client, Bendix's attorney, Lee Moua, argued he only decided to post the nude selfies sent to him by his then-17-year-old girlfriend in late 2011 because she cheated on him with another man. But according to the Pioneer Press, Ramsey County District Judge Gary Bastian didn't want to hear any of that ridiculousness.

"Welcome to life," the judge wisely told them.

The PiPress reports that Bendix posted the photos, complete with his ex's name, on Flickr, where they were discovered late last year by the victim's new boyfriend. Bendix included this eww-worthy comment under one of them: "A girl I [had sex with] a couple of times. The sex was goooooood."

Bendix was convicted of gross misdemeanor criminal defamation in August. Today, he was sentenced to time served (two days) plus two years probation, during which time he can't drink or do drugs, must keep a job, and for God's sake, learn not to be a complete and utter dickwad next time he gets done wrong by a lover (okay, that last part isn't really one of the conditions of his probation, but you get the idea...).

He should have saved the pics til she ran for a public office.

A note: regardless of whether or not she was underage, it is WRONG both legally and ethically to post pictures of someone publicly that were taken in private without their permission. Ugh. Just Ugh. This wouldn't have been right to do even if she was 20. It's just more wrong that she was under 18 (I believe age of consent in MN is 16 at any rate).

Isnt calling someone a slut and saying they deserve to have their naked body exposed

I guess to me the dumb part is taking photographs of a underage girl, posting them on the internet and admitting you had sex with her. I would think the sex with a minor would be a worse crime than what he was charged with.

Respect goes out the window for me if she cheats, I have been in both good and bad relationships, but even when I was unhappy I kept it in my pants...that's what a respectful human being does!!

Unless, you know, you actually respected her. Just because someone cheats on you doesn't mean you automatically hate them forever. Real adult relationships are usually more complicated than that.

You know it is pretty sad, yes she cheated on him,  well she was 17 (under age) but 2 wrongs don't make a right, I was cheated on by my first girlfriend, yes it sucked and yes it hurt but I never even considered hurting her back, especially like that, I think his sentence was to light for posting under age pic's!

interesting, MN defines defamation very broadly compared to many other locations (criminal Defamation is defined at at state level and not a federal level) 609.765 CRIMINAL DEFAMATION. Subdivision 1.Definition. Defamatory matter is anything which exposes a person or a group, class or association to hatred, contempt, ridicule, degradation or disgrace in society, or injury to business or occupation.

Dylan went from being cheated on to never getting laid. Well played, moron.

How does a grown man think it's okay to post naked pictures of a seventeen year old, whether she cheated on him or not? Fail.

lesson here: don't cheat. especially if your ex has nudes of you.

This judge needs to be seen and not heard. His opinion is irrelevant.

@Craig Schroeder "...his THEN 17-yo girlfriend in 2011." He is NOW 20. So, I guess NOW she would be...?

@John Doyle  Oh brother utter hogwash. And HOW do YOU know you have not been cheated on before? You don't.

@John Doyle ......if I had a girlfriend and she cheated on me I would show that bitch......    Thanks for the laugh John Doyle.  You are obviously a ladies man.

@Lex Lambent No, the lesson here is "Don't post naked pictures of underage girls online". If you honestly think what he did is ok because she cheated, you are a terrible human being.

Earth to Jason: judges constantly give their opinion and in most cases, especially high profile ones like this. Nice try blaming someone else besides this dickwad though.
