HANOVER TOWNSHIP – A woman who admitted posting nude photos of her husband’s girlfriend online hit a Newswatch 16 reporter on her way out of court on Tuesday.
Investigators in Luzerne County say Ottaviani wanted to get even with her soon-to-be-ex-husband. They say she tried going after his new girlfriend and that woman’s son.
Minutes after Ottaviani agreed to plead guilty to charges of corruption of minors and criminal use of a computer, she tried ripping away our microphone when we tried getting her side of the story.
When Newswatch 16 tried to get Ottaviani’s side of the story, she tried ripping the microphone away and later hit Newswatch 16 reporter Bill Wadell in the face with her purse, as family members tried to block the camera.
Ottavani’s estranged husband lives in Luzerne County.
Court records say that back in January Ottaviani hacked into his computer and cell phone and stole naked photos of his girlfriend.
Investigators say Ottaviani created a fake Facebook page and added the girlfriend’s son as a friend.
Police say that 14 year old looked at the page out of curiosity and ended up seeing naked photos of his mother.
Hanover Township police are now investigating Ottaviani’s actions outside the court hearing.
