Breach of Privacy Charges Defense Attorneys

Internet trend enthusiasts guesstimate that an average of 1.8 billion digital images are uploaded to the World Wide Web every day. Of the billions of photos out there, many of these are shared on social media pages and through messaging platforms. With all these people sharing pictures over text messages and social media, it begs the question about the legality of sharing photos containing other people in the buff. Is it legal to share nude photos of others with friends and social media platforms?

Revenge Porn
As almost everyone has a smartphone nowadays, taking an explicit picture and sending it to a significant other is easier than ever before. The question is: can that significant other than share that picture to other people? To answer this question, we have to look at the phenomenon of “revenge porn.”

Revenge porn is when an ex-spouse or significant other posts nude photos of their ex on the internet. This trend started to become popular over time as more and more people uploaded lewd photos of their past lovers to the internet.

Most people see this as a destructive action, so Kansas government officials decided to act.

Kansas Law HB 2501

In 2016 Governor Sam Brownback signed HB 2501, a law that outlawed the posting of nude photos or videos of a person on the internet without his or her consent in Kansas.

A charge under this law is a serious matter; here are the possible convictions:

  • When a person shares a nude photo on the internet without permission, he or she is likely to be charged with a felony conviction of breach of privacy.
  • When a person attempts to blackmail someone else with his or her nude photos, the perpetrator is likely to be charged with felony blackmail: a conviction that can result in up to six years in prison.

As you can see, posting nude pictures of someone on the internet without their permission is a serious offense. If you have previously posted nude pictures of someone without their consent, you should immediately take down the post as soon as possible.

However, many people do not know this law and mistakes can happen. If you or a loved one are accused of a breach of privacy or blackmail charge, it is crucial that you hire experienced criminal law counsel as soon as possible.

In today’s world, when two people are involved in an intimate relationship, sharing romantic text messages and other messages can evolve into sharing intimate, sexual images of one another. However, when the relationship heads south, angry partners may sometimes share private photos and videos of their ex—with the purpose of causing embarrassment and shame.

This is known as “revenge porn,” which is defined as sharing images depicting nudity without the consent of the person who was recorded. When private images are made available to the public, the victim can suffer significant damage to their personal life and professional reputation.

So far, there are 37 states that have passed legislation that criminalizes revenge porn, including Kansas and Missouri.

In Kansas, the crime is known as “breach of privacy,” which is defined as knowingly and without consent disseminating any nude or sexual photo, video, or any visual materials of another person who is at least 18 years of age with the intent to harass or intimidate the individual. The crime is a severity level 8 person felony.

In Missouri, a person can be charged for threatening the dissemination of private and sexual photos, videos, and images of another person without consent in order to gain anything of value. The crime is a Class E felony.
