Should Revenge Porn Be A Crime?

Should Revenge Porn Be A Crime?

Unknown - 2014
Rate this:
Revenge porn is defined as the dissemination of sexually explicit images of an ex-lover without their permission. It can often be emotionally devastating and have lasting effects on a person's reputation and employability. That's exactly what Nicole Coon, a 25-year-old Virginia nursing student, experienced last November when she found a sexually explicit video of herself on the Internet. Coon had filmed and sent the video to her boyfriend of 8 years; however, once the relationship went sour he allegedly posted the video online. The website where he allegedly posted advertises as a platform for revenge porn. In July of 2014, Virginia acted to protect people like Nicole and criminalized revenge porn. While most people sympathize with the victims, some fear criminalizing this behavior will have dire consequences on constitutionally protected free speech.
