Revenge porn bill passes in Senate

A bill passed in the Senate would create the crimes of sextortion and sexploitation, or what some refer to as revenge porn legislation.

Senate Bill 2907 would prohibit a person from disclosing a photo or other visual image without permission of a person’s intimate parts exposed or of the individual engaged in sexual conduct.

Sen. Sally Doty, R-Brookhaven, the bill’s author; said it carries civil liability and criminal penalties.
