On Thursday, Hunter Moore was indicted by a federal grand jury for his reported operation of a revenge-porn business online. He has been dubbed “the most hated man on the Internet,” according to Time. The announcement was made by an official at the United States Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.

It has been reported that Moore is the operator of a website with the address of isanyoneup.com. The site posts nude photos of people, with the majority of them being posted without consent. The indictment was handed down from the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

Moore and Charles ‘Gray’ Evens were charged conspiracy to “access a protected computer without authorization to obtain information for private financial gain” and other counts.

The indictment states that Moore paid Evens to hack email accounts and steal nude photos of people so they could be posted on the website. The two are slated to make a court appearance on Tuesday. Moore will appear in federal court in Sacramento and Evens will appear in U.S. District Court in L.A.

“We’re ecstatic,” Charlotte Laws, an anti-revenge porn activist. “We’re super-pleased that the FBI have brought this to fruition. I’ve talked to several of the victims and they are extremely pleased, and I know all the victims are going to feel happy and they are going to feel that finally justice is being served.”

In March of 2013, Moore was ordered to pay $250,000 to the founder of BullyVille.com founder James McGibney for charges of defamation, so this is not his first run-in with the law.

Reza Sina, the former attorney for Moore, told Time that she no longer represents him.



“In May of 2013, I was in Washington, D.C., and he called me and told me he was being questioned by the FBI, and it’s at that time I decided to cease all communications with him,” Sina says.
