Last week, Los Angeles man Noe Iniguez became the first person to be convicted under California’s Revenge Porn law. The law, enacted in October 2013, forbids “unauthorized posting of nude or sexual images of an individual with the purpose of causing emotional distress.”

In December 2013, Iniguez posted degrading comments and a topless photo of his ex-girlfriend on her company’s Facebook page in a bid to get her fired. He will serve one year in jail and three years’ probation.

As of now, California is one of 13 states that have enacted laws against revenge porn since 2013. (No word on if any of the other states have convicted anyone yet.) Let’s hope other states will follow suit.
