(Newser) – Arizona is the latest state to outlaw so-called "revenge porn," making it a felony to post sexually compromising images of your ex online without her or his consent. Those who post such images, often as a means of humiliating former partners, may face a minimum of six months to a year in prison and a fine of up to $150,000, the Arizona Republic reports. The law distinguishes between images which feature recognizable victims and those whose subjects are unrecognizable. Distributing the images—online or off—can also now be considered a form of domestic violence in the state.

If people would just make better decisions on the really easy judgement call of "Should I Have A Naked Picture Taken Of Me", then we wouldn't need a stupid law like this in the first place ! ! !

Suppose she was an ex-model for a Krispy Kreame Calandar and you post that one of her?

Arizona passes sensible legislation. Armaggedon at nine.
