Bill to ban revenge porn moves forwardSubmitted: 11/13/2013
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - The Wisconsin Assembly has passed a Republican bill that would that outlaw posting revenge porn.

Under current state law, anyone who possesses or distributes an image of a nude person captured without that person's consent faces a felony charge that carries a maximum sentence of $10,000 in fines and three-and-a-half years in prison.

Under the bill, anyone who disseminates a nude picture without the subject's consent, regardless of whether the subject granted consent to capture the image, would be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and nine months in jail.

The Assembly passed the bill on a voice vote Tuesday. The measure now goes to the Senate.
