HOUSTON, TX (KPRC) — The wife of a man who made a sex tape with his mistress earlier this year used the video to get money from her husband, according to court documents.
Leslie Hippensteel and Saul Eisenberg are being sought on charges of unlawful distribution of visual material in connection with the case, NBC affiliate KPRC-TV reports.
According to the documents, Hippensteel’s husband and Eisenberg’s girlfriend had an affair. During the affair, the husband and girlfriend made two video recordings of them having sex. The husband emailed the videos to himself in order to save them.
Hippensteel discovered the recordings and confronted her husband about them, according to the documents. Investigators said she then told him that if he didn’t pay her, she would send the videos to his employer — a Christian school in the Houston area.
According to the documents, bank records showed that the husband paid his wife more than $7,800 in the hope of preventing her from disseminating the videos. However, the wife still sent them to her husband’s employer and Eisenberg, who is the boyfriend of her husband’s mistress.
Eisenberg, who was in a custody battle with his girlfriend, then sent the videos via text message to his mother and stepfather, according to the documents.
Hippensteel, according to court documents, also set up an email account in her husband’s name, and used that email to upload the sex tape to a pornographic website.
Hippensteel resigned from his job at the school in lieu of being fired, according to the documents.
