A Los Angeles man will serve one year in jail for posting nude photographs of his ex-girlfriend on the Internet.

Summary: A Los Angeles man will serve a year in jail for posting nude photographs of his ex-girlfriend online, the first conviction of its kind in the city.

The L.A. Times reports that Noe Iniguez, a 36-year-old man from Los Angeles, California, will serve a year in jail under California’s new “revenge porn” law for posting nude pictures of his ex-girlfriend on the Internet. The conviction is the first one under this statute in the Los Angeles city attorney’s office.

Iniguez faced a seven-day trial for the charges he was facing. The jury found that Iniguez was guilty of violating California’s “revenge porn” statute, which prohibits citizens from posting nude pictures online for the purpose of causing emotional harm.

Here’s an article about the indictment of the “revenge porn king.”

In addition to his one-year sentence, Iniguez will attend domestic violence counseling and serve 36 months’ probation. Finally, and perhaps obviously, Iniguez is ordered to keep away from his ex-girlfriend. City attorney Mike Feuer said, “This conviction sends a strong message that this type of malicious behavior will not be tolerated.”

He added that the new statute is a “valuable tool” for prosecutors who seek to protect victims “whose lives and reputations have been upended by a person they once trusted.”

According to prosecutors, Iniguez created an alias and posted disparaging statements about his ex-girlfriend of four years on her employer’s Facebook profile in December 2013. A few months later, he uploaded nude pictures of her on the same profile, calling her a “drunk” and “slut.” In addition, he said that her employers should fire her.

Earlier this year, a lawsuit was filed against Facebook for revenge porn issues.

The couple actually broke up a couple of years earlier. In November 2011, Iniguez’s ex-girlfriend was granted a restraining order against him after he sent her harassing text messages after they broke up.

Here’s an article about the massive celebrity nude photo leak from this fall.

State Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced in February that an Oklahoma man will also face “revenge porn” charges in California for posting nude photographs of various women on his website as an alleged form of blackmail.
