What Is “Revenge Porn,” And Is It Illegal?
In our online era, a new activity has emerged that involves suspects posting images online of their former intimate partner naked or engaging in sexual activity. Pennsylvania legislators responded by banning the unlawful dissemination of this “revenge porn.” Anyone convicted of this misdemeanor may spend up to two years in jail and pay a fine of up to $5,000. If the authorities or a former partner accuses you of this crime, contact our firm immediately to begin your defense. Do not speak with the police or other authorities until you talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney.
The Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, or SORNA, is a law that requires people who are convicted of certain sex crimes to register as sex offenders. However, the state Supreme Court recently found this registry unconstitutional and many offenders no longer have to register. If you had to register as a sex offender under this law, we may be able to challenge your registration and get you off this list.
