Robert Press learned a valuable lesson: Revenge porn doesn't go unpunished. The 29-year-old Brooklyn native was arrested last week for allegedly videotaping he and his girlfriend having sex, then uploading the video to Craigslist and an unnamed porn site after she broke up with him.

When the 32-year-old woman learned about the video, she succeeded in having it removed from Craigslist, but it's still live on the adult site. Police say she was unaware that she was being filmed. Authorities say Press, who's jobless and lives at home with his mother, suffers from agoraphobia.

He was arraigned Saturday night after being charged with unlawful surveillance. His bail was set at $250,000.
