California sees its first 'revenge porn' conviction

A Los Angeles man who allegedly posted nude pictures of his former girlfriend online is the first person to be convicted under California's "revenge porn" statute, which was signed into law in October 2013 and prohibits the unauthorized posting of nude or sexual images of a person with the purpose of causing emotional distress.

Noe Iniguez, 36, was found guilty of three criminal charges and sentenced to one year in jail and 36 months probation, Time reports. Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said in a statement that the case was based on postings Iniguez allegedly made on the Facebook page of his former girlfriend's employer using an alias. He allegedly posted a topless photo of the woman, wrote a message calling her a "slut" and a "drunk," and urged the company to fire her.

In addition to jail time and probation, Iniguez must stay away from his ex-girlfriend and attend domestic violence counseling.
