What are the laws in relation to Revenge Porn?

March 2015

Recently the press and TV have reported on the subject of what has come to be called revenge porn.

The subject is not a creation of the over active imagination of creative media types. As recently as October last year the Crown Prosecution  Service published a new policy on how they will deal with conduct which they say merits the description. They define revenge porn as sexually explicit media publicly shared on line without the consent of the pictured individual, usually uploaded by ex-partners. They clearly intend to take a hard line with such offending.

Various laws already exist by which such conduct can be prosecuted and a new statute creating an offence carrying two years imprisonment is expected to come into force later this year.

An ill judged heat of the moment action could therefore result in prosecution and the imposition of serious criminal penalties, including entry on the Sex Offenders Register.

Here at Norrie Waite & Slater we have a group of skilled and experienced lawyers able to advise and represent at Court anyone affected by this subject.
