When Getting a Divorce is Not Enough…

Sometimes getting a divorce isn’t enough…

According to the Dallas Morning News, a Dallas actress is accused of blackmailing her now-former husband with a recording of him having sex with another woman.

Leslie Amanda Hippensteel, 31, faces a charge of unlawful disclosure of intimate visual material, a misdemeanor, according to Harris County court records. She has not been arrested.

According to a criminal complaint, Hippensteel’s husband, John Ousley, was having an affair and recorded two sexual encounters, which he saved to his email. [What kind of people leave tracks like this to be found…?…!]

When Hippensteel found the sex tapes in January, the complaint says, she told Ousley she would send the videos to his employer — Houston Christian High School — if he didn’t give her money.

Bank records show that Ousley transferred money to Hippensteel’s account and made withdrawals totaling $7,812.21, authorities said.

Hippensteel then sent the videos to 28-year-old Saul Matthew Eisenberg of Houston, the boyfriend of the woman in the recordings, according to the criminal complaint.

Eisenberg, who was going through a custody battle with his girlfriend, admitted in a deposition that he had received the videos on Feb. 2 and then sent them to his mother and stepfather.

Later in February, the court documents say, a fake email account was used to upload the videos to the adult website Pornhub. The videos were also sent to Ousley’s school, which he resigned from after being confronted about them.

Eisenberg also faces a charge of unlawful disclosure of intimate visual material. The class A misdemeanor carries a punishment of up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

And NOW…

The divorce between Hippensteel and Ousley was finalized last month, court records show.

Sometimes the ”pound of flesh” is something on a flash drive…or in this case, a recording in an email.But sometimes there are consequences of extracting it…
