A woman in Florida has filed a lawsuit against a T-Mobile store employee for invasion of privacy, alleging that he stole a sex video while fixing her phone.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Keely Hightower said that believed the employee was taking too long when she brought her phone to the store back in May.

The following day, the 24-year-old noticed an unfamiliar email that was sent from her account with an attachment that was in the trash folder.

She added that the file was a video that was on her phone, showing her engaging in sexual acts.

She then noticed that the email was sent by the employee, Roberto Sanchez Ramos, 26, to his personal email address. She then proceeded to contact the authorities.

The woman said that her “heart dropped” when she realized what happened.

Court documents indicated that Ramos pleaded guilty to a computer offense charge and was sentenced to six months behind bars, and was released in October.

Now she has filed a lawsuit against him and the company that owns the store, Global Innovative Group, for negligence and intrusion of privacy.

She added that the incident caused her mental and emotional distress.

Hightower, who is a secretary in an ophthalmologist’s office, says she doesn’t know what Ramos did with the footage.

“My thought was where did the video go? What happened after that?” she continued. “That was my main concern… I didn’t want the video out there in public.”

Court documents indicate that Ramos has a lengthy rap sheet.

In 2013, he was arrested for grand theft after he was busted taking two iPads from a Walmart where he was a maintenance worker. He completed a pretrial diversion program in that case.

Three years later, while working at another T-Mobile in Largo, he pleaded guilty to plotting to defraud the store. He was on probation when he was implicated in Hightower’s case.
