Oleg Korbut, who works at a west-end clinic, was charged in January 2010 with theft under $5,000 and criminal harrassment.
He was convicted of the crimes on Aug. 10 in court presided over by Judge Peter Harris. He will be sentenced Oct. 30.
The court was told Korbut met the woman in 2007 and they went on trips to Quebec City and Cuba and held "meetings" at his office.
The woman testified Korbut took "nude photos and videos" of her before they broke up in October 2009.
"He promised me that he would delete them all (sex photos and videos,)" the woman testified in January 2010.
She said that Korbut warned her after they separated that he "had saved them all, and if he wanted to, he would show them to everybody."
The woman said Korbut had access to her wireless account, contact information and telephone numbers.
She said Korbut sent fake e-mails under her name to 30 of her friends, family members and churchgoing pals.
Some mails "contained personal and website links to sexually explicit photos and videos she had made with Korbut," court heard.
The woman's profile was even placed on an online dating website, where it was alleged "she would like to meet a man between the ages of 21 and 60 to have sex with several times a day," court was told.
She said that the fake profile in her name "resulted in men calling late at night and they would introduce themselves and ask when could we meet."
"And once around 11 p.m., a man came and he knocked on the door," she said. "It was unpleasant and I was scared, repulsed and I felt defenceless."
That's when a friend took her to police to file a complaint.
Korbut testified that it was the woman who insisted on taking the nude pictures and video.
"She was always insisting, pleading, blackmailing me that if I were not to take pictures of her then she would leave me," he told court, adding he snapped "maybe 20, 25 skin shots."
Harris ruled there was "overwhelming proof that Korbut was the perpetrator of this campaign to damage the complainant.
"He enabled the images to be recorded by purchasing a camera for her," he said. "He was the cameraman and must have assisted on shots that were taken of both of them from a camera in a fixed position at his office."
Court heard Korbut was upset the woman had a new boyfriend and sent to their home a sexually explicit DVD with pornographic images of her, calling it a "Valentine's gift."
