Vengeance Is Mine, But Is It Worth Ten Thousand Dollars or Two Years in Jail? Revenge Porn Is Landing Louisianans Behind Bars

Abstract: 

YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and text messaging made it increasingly easy for jilted lovers to get revenge on former intimate partners, but Louisiana is fighting back for the victims. The Louisiana legislature enacted Louisiana Revised Statute 14:283.2, nonconsensual disclosure of a private image, and the law came into effect on August 15, 2015. Multiple news outlets have reported arrest in several different parishes throughout Louisiana. This article will address the questions of what is revenge porn and how does Louisiana’s new legislation criminalize the inexcusable act. This new law is simple and this article will break it down by it elements.

To be taken from the article is victims of this crime have options other than costly civil remedies. They can now contact local law enforcement to show distributors that vengeance is not theirs and they should be punished for this act. Although, the statute provides for multiple and maybe challenging elements it is still an option that was not available before August 15, 2015.
