CULPEPER, Va. — The Culpeper Police Department is facing lawsuits from two Culpeper residents who say their privacy was violated when sexually explicit pictures on a cell phone were deliberately shared among officers and deputies after an arrest.

Filed late last month in U.S. District Court in Charlottesville, the plaintiffs, Nathan Newhard and Jessie M. Casella, each seek unspecified compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages.
