Miami Revenge Porn Attorneys

Helping You with All Your Criminal Defense Needs

With the rise of texting, photo-sharing, and social media, many people began sending explicit pictures of themselves to intimate partners. In addition, many people use smartphones to take photos during sexual encounters. These photos are usually intended to be private and are not meant to be shared with anyone else. However, a trend started that when a relationship sours, too often one party would publicly post explicit photos or videos of their partner online or otherwise distribute them to others. In addition, hackers began targeting smartphones and stealing explicit personal photos and exposing them to the public. In response to this harmful trend, many states including Florida have passed laws making “revenge porn” a criminal offense. If you have been charged with a crime, it is imperative that you get in touch with a Miami revenge porn attorney immediately.

Allegations of Revenge Porn

Revenge porn falls under the umbrella of criminal sexual harassment, specifically “sexual cyber harassment.”

Sexual cyber harassment involves the following:

  • Posting sexually explicit photos on a website without the subject’s permission
  • The photo conveys the identity of the person in the photo
  • There is no other legitimate purpose to publish the photo
  • The photo was posted with the intent to cause significant emotional distress to the person in the photo

It is important to note that the law in Florida only criminalizes publishing photos to a website online. It is not a crime to share photos via email, text, or even through Snapchat and other social media outlets.

Penalties for Revenge Porn in Florida

Sexual cyber harassment is a first degree misdemeanor under Florida law. This means there is a maximum sentence of 1 year in jail and a fine of $1,000. You may also receive probation and other requirements set out by the criminal court. If you are charged with sexual cyber harassment and you already have a previous conviction on your record, you can face third degree felony charges, which can lead to 5 years in prison and a fine of $5,000. In addition, if the subject in the photos was a minor, you could face extremely serious child pornography charges as well.

Convictions for offenses such as stalking or criminal harassment can never be expunged from your criminal record. This means that any future employers or landlords who run a background check will see that you were convicted of revenge porn. Due to the malicious nature of the offense, a conviction will likely jeopardize your ability to be accepted to higher education programs or to obtain a professional license.
