Last week, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation strengthing the state's existing revenge porn laws. SacBee's David Siders:
Existing law makes it a misdemeanor to post private, graphic pictures or footage of someone online with the intention of humiliating them.
Senate Bill 1255, by Sen. Anthony Cannella, R-Ceres, expands the prohibition to include sexually explicit images that are meant to be private, regardless who created the image.
Cannella’s office called the bill the “Revenge Porn 2.0 Act.”
