Arizona Senate approves ‘revenge porn’ bill

PHOENIX — The Arizona Senate approved a bill aimed at stopping jilted
lovers from posting explicit pictures of their former flames online to get
revenge.

The measure sponsored by Republican Rep. J.D. Mesnard of Chandler would make it
a felony to post nude photos of a person without their written consent.

House Bill 2515 is one of many measures being considered across the nation in
response to the posting of “revenge porn” that has been made easier by the
growth of social networking sites. Last year, California made it a misdemeanor
to post such images.

The Senate unanimously approved the bill Monday after amending it to define
some postings as acts of domestic violence. It will go back to the House for
final approval.
