“Revenge Porn” Nabs First Perpetrator in Los Angeles

“Revenge Porn” Nabs First Perpetrator in Los Angeles

A new “revenge porn” law took its first scalp after a Los Angeles jury convicted 36-year-old Noe Iniguez for violating the new statute which bans posting nude photographs online for the purpose of causing emotional harm.

On Monday, Los Angeles City prosecutors sentenced Iniguez, who was also guilty of violating restraining laws, to a year in jail, 36 months’ probation, domestic violence counseling and he must stay away from his ex-girlfriend.

The Los Angeles Times reported that in December 2013, Iniguez used an alias and posted insulting comments about his former girlfriend on her work’s Facebook page. Moreover, referring to her as a “slut” and a “drunk”, he added nude photographs of her a few months later on the same page.

Adding fuel to the fire, he encouraged her employers to fire her.

The Times reported that Iniguez’s conviction is the first time the Los Angeles city attorney’s office prosecuted someone under the new “revenge porn” law.

Thirteen states have enacted legislation since 2013: Ariz., Calif., Colo., Del., Ga., Hawaii, Idaho, Md., New York, Penn., Utah, Va., and Wisconsin.
