Nevada bill would make ‘revenge porn’ a crime

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada lawmakers are contemplating a bill that would make it a crime to distribute “revenge porn.”

The Assembly Judiciary Committee held a hearing Friday to overview AB49, which is sponsored by the attorney general’s office.

Bill presenters say explicit photos are occasionally exchanged privately inside a connection, and then sent out extensively soon after a break-up.

The measure would make it a category C felony if a person electronically distributes an intimate image of someone with the intent to harass, annoy or terrorize them.

It would exclude pictures in which the individual isn’t clearly identifiable, voluntarily exposed themselves in a public setting or is a public figure.

The bill would also toughen penalties for sexual crimes against youngsters. Teachers could be prosecuted for a broader range of sexual crimes against students.
