On Monday, Noe Iniguez, 36, was sentenced to a year of jail time for three criminal counts, including one count of violating California’s relatively new revenge porn law. Iniguez was also found guilty of twice violating a restraining order his ex-girlfriend had against him.
In a press release, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office said that the conviction of Iniguez under the revenge porn law was its first. A jury ruled that Iniguez will also have to serve 36 months probation, attend domestic violence counseling, and stay away from the victim.
California’s revenge porn law was enacted in October 2013, and it forbids people from posting “nude or sexual” photos online with the intent to cause emotional harm. Violators of the law can face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. The state aimed to go after popular sites like Hunter Moore’s IsAnybodyUp, which posted nude photos of people with their identifying information but without their consent. Such sites have usually demanded a fee to have the photos taken down.
