I took the pictures and texted them to someone. he then emailed them to several people and claims to have posted them online.

Yes. They are not nude photos but are suggestive.

I am grateful for your help but this matter is URGENT

Relist: Answer came too late.
I requested URGENT assistance. Please, I require URGENT assistance.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
I am sorry to hear this.Unfortunately, the texts are not private because you texted them to this person so he has the right to post your text online.While there is no intellectual property rights in an image there is in a photograph and he is breaching your copyright of the photos that you hold because you took them. for this reason I suggest that you tell him that if he does not remove the photos from his posts online you will retain a lawyer and sue him to get an order to have the photos removed and for damages.You can tell him that because you took the photos you hold the intellectual property rights to these photos and do not consent to him using them in any way especially online.

He is American Can I file a DMCA notice?

I cannot find the images online so do not have the URLs to the images.

They were sent via email to strangers at my husband's work.

Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
I am not sure if that will work. He will ignore you. I suggest you pay a lawyer to write him a letter. That will likely scare him into removing any photos that have been posted, if they even have been.

What type of lawyer?
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
Any lawyer can write the letter. Seeing a lawyer that does civil litigation would be best but it's not vital.
