California Jails First Man for Revenge Porn

Hallelujah! Finally, the first bit of positive action taken over jerks that post nude photos of their exes online for ‘revenge’. The Washington Post reports that California has convicted its first person under its new revenge porn law.

Noe Iniguez, 36, was found guilty of violating two restraining orders and the state’s revenge porn law. The revenge porn law enacted in 2013 originally only made it illegal to distribute private, sexually explicit photos or videos taken by someone else but was expanded in August  to include selfies.

Revenge porn is when you post sexual photos of someone on the Internet to get back at them. It became big business with certain websites posting thousands of nude photos of ex-girlfriends and some even extorting money from the victims to take down the photos. So it really is a good day today that I can report this.

Iniguez’s ex-girlfriend had originally taken out a restraining order against him in November 2011 when he started harassing her through text messages following the breakup of their four-year relationship. In December 2013, Iniguez used a fake name to post insulting comments about her on her employer’s Facebook page. And most recently in March 2014 he posted a topless photo of her on the employer’s Facebook page and called her a ‘slut’ and a ‘drunk’ and urged them to fire her.

I mean, first of all, dude, Iniguez, get over it. You guys broke up three years ago and you’re still hung up on your ex? I mean who still trolls their exes three years after breaking up? Secondly, Iniguez was sentenced to a year in jail and three years of probation and was ordered to take domestic violence counseling and to stay away from the victim.

I really hope that this is a strong step not only to stopping revenge porn but also to stopping celebrity hacking. Perhaps if more people were persecuted like this we’d have less cases like the Fappening.
