Revenge Porn
A disturbing trend that is on the rise, revenge porn involves the practice of sharing sexual images on the Internet without consent. Depending on the state, this crime carries jail time and a possible fine. A recent study showed that two-thirds of revenge porn incidents involved women under 30, with suspects being former partners. Those who share “sexual selfies” often find the photos coming back to haunt them after a breakup. Images are used not just for revenge, but also to control, abuse and humiliate victims. There are also cases where computers are hacked and webcams are accessed in order to obtain explicit images.
