Congress pondering revenge porn law

Regular readers of our Raleigh criminal law blog might well remember a post we wrote in late April about a North Carolina man facing a sex crime charge. The 39-year-old Marine is accused of posting on Facebook "revenge porn" involving a civilian woman. He was arrested by Jacksonville police.

A bill recently introduced in the U.S. Senate would make revenge porn a crime under the military code. The measure has already been approved by the House of Representatives.

According to a newspaper report in the San Diego Union-Tribune, the legislation was launched after the Marines United scandal erupted in March. A number of active-duty Marines and others were accused of sharing without consent graphic photos of female members of the military, along with defamatory comments.

According to the article, more than 30 Marines faced punishment in the case, while several others faced possible felony criminal charges. The newspaper article also mentioned the arrest by civil law enforcement officials of the Marine here in North Carolina.

Arizona congresswoman Martha McSally, a former Air Force pilot, issued from the House floor a scathing denunciation of those involved in the Marines United scandal, calling them "Neanderthals" who are part of "a serious problem that must be fixed."

Revenge porn is already a crime in our state. Those charged with it and other sex crime violations understand the grave nature of the accusation and possible punishments.

You can speak with an experienced attorney at the Raleigh law firm of Dysart Willis about your case.
