UT football player suspended after being charged with breaking Oklahoma's 'revenge porn' law

Texas Longhorns defensive back Ishmael Ibraheem has been suspended from the UT football team after Oklahoma State University police accused the freshman of violating Oklahoma's "revenge porn" law.


The freshman, who has played in one UT game this season, will be suspended until the legal process has finished. Ibraheem is being charged with a misdemeanor of nonconsensual dissemination of private sexual images following accusations that he sent sexually explicit content of an Oklahoma State University student via social media, according to the Stillwater News Press.

“We were made aware of the allegations involving Ishmael Ibraheem in early September and immediately cooperated with the University and legal processes, which remain ongoing. In light of the new information and his recent charges, he has been suspended from all team activities at this time as we continue to monitor the legal process,” a UT spokesperson said.

Ibraheem had engaged in a sexual relationship with the student before he reportedly sent explicit content of the student via social media. Oklahoma's "revenge porn" law fights to combat sending sexual images of a person without their consent, especially when sent with malicious intent. It can result in up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

According to the bill, which was enacted in 2016, a person can be given the charge if they "disseminate the image with the intent to harass, intimidate or coerce the person, or under circumstances in which a reasonable person would know or understand that dissemination of the image would harass, intimidate or coerce the person."

OSU police claim Ibraheem sent his ex and another student a video of him and the victim engaged in sexual acts, including a TikTok video. The victim initially did not know Ibraheem was recording but later asked him to keep it private. Ibraheem originally said he unsent the message of the video, so the person never saw it.

Ibraheem was charged Friday and has an arrest warrant with a bond of $2,000.
