Cyber Sexual Assault, also known as “revenge porn” is when a person distributes explicit photographs and video of someone without their consent.
In this rapidly changing world, the humiliation and anguish that women suffer from sexual harassment and assault are moving online. We need to recognize that vindictive people do not only torment their victims through harassing phone calls or stalking any longer — they’re releasing privately shared and sexually explicit pictures onto public websites specifically designed for vengeful purposes or to humiliate their exes. No one deserves to be treated this way and predators should not have the right to use the internet to ruin someone else’s life. That is why I am introducing legislation to make publishing revenge porn a felony in Maryland.
