Changes To Revenge Pornography Crimes
Revenge porn - changes to the crimes. Currently, Colorado criminalizes posting nude images of another person for harassment purposes or for pecuniary gain. The act makes the following changes to those crimes:
- Adds images of sex acts that may not include nude images;
- Removes the requirement that the defendant intends to inflict serious emotional distress; and
- Removes as an exception to the crimes that the image relates to a newsworthy event.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
