MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – A man from Miami Beach was arrested Thursday after allegedly posting nude videos and photos of his ex-girlfriend online for revenge after she broke up with him.

Antonio Giansante Garcia is facing numerous charges, including possession of child pornography and promoting sexual performance by a child.

According to the arrest report, Garcia created numerous Facebook and Instagram accounts, and a website with nude photos and video of the victim. The images were from when the woman was a minor through adulthood.

According to the woman, she had a sexual relationship with Garcia shortly after he was her soccer coach in Puerto Rico when she was 16 years old.

She said she moved to Miami Beach with Garcia in 2009 and broke up with him in 2012 because of his jealously and possessiveness.

Detectives said some of the still images in question consisted of the victim performing sexual acts with Garcia while others were of her alone.

The victim told police that many of her co-workers and their husbands had received friend requests to the social media accounts and said she suffered panic attacks from the "tormenting conduct."

Police visited Garcia's home Thursday, where they said he admitted to keeping some of the victim's nude photos on a storage device. They said he also admitted to posting some of the photos online but didn't specify which ones.

According to the arrest report, Garcia, who works in the information technology field, claimed he believed someone had hacked through his Internet service.

In addition to the images of the victim, police said 32 grams of marijuana were also found in the home. 

Garcia was then booked into jail.

On Friday, a judge set Garcia's bond at $100,000 and ordered Garcia to stay away from the victim. Garcia is also banned from using social media.
