LA man sentenced to prison in new ‘revenge porn’ law

December 3rd, 2014 by Staff

The sentence was handed down earlier this week in California.


(CBS Los Angeles) LOS ANGELES – A man who posted a topless photo of his ex-girlfriend on her employer’s Facebook page has been sentenced to a year in jail under the state’s revenge porn law, Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said Monday.

“California’s new revenge porn law gives prosecutors a valuable tool to protect victims whose lives and reputations have been upended by a person they once trusted,” Feuer said. “This conviction sends a strong message that this type of malicious behavior will not be tolerated.”

Noe Iniguez, 36, was found guilty under the 2013 statue which prohibits the unauthorized posting of nude or sexual images of an individual with the purpose of causing emotional distress. Iniguiez was also convicted of two counts of violating restraining orders.

Iniguez, the first defendant to be convicted in a revenge porn case filed by Feuer’s office, was also sentenced to three years probation and ordered to attend domestic violence counseling sessions and to stay away from the victim.

Iniguez and the victim dated for four years and broke up in 2011. After receiving several harassing text messages from Iniguez following the breakup, she obtained a restraining order against him.

Last December, Iniguez used an alias to post derogatory comments about her on her employer’s Facebook page. In March, he posted the topless photo, along with comments calling her a “drunk” and a “slut” and saying she should be fired.
