Wisconsin Assembly to consider revenge porn bill

Nov. 12, 2013
 

MADISON — The Wisconsin Assembly is set to pass a Republican bill that would that outlaw posting revenge porn.

Under current state law, anyone who possesses, reproduces or distributes an image of a nude person that was captured without that personís consent faces a felony charge that carries a maximum sentence of $10,000 in fines and three-and-a-half years in prison.

Under the bill, anyone who disseminates a nude picture without the subjectís consent, regardless of whether the subject granted consent to capture the image, would be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and nine months in jail.

The bill is designed to discourage people from posting naked pictures of their ex-lovers in hopes of embarrassing them.

The Assembly is expected to vote on the measure Tuesday afternoon.
