First man to be charged with revenge porn in Wisconsin faces court

A man who posted nude pictures of his Milwaukee, Wisconsin ex-girlfriend is now facing a trial for revenge porn was scheduled to appear in court on December 31, the Journal Sentinel reported.

According to a criminal complaint, the woman’s ex-boyfriend, 31-year-old Milwaukee resident Keslin Jean Jacques, said he wouldn’t be liable for posting nude and seminude pictures of the complainant on the Internet as Wisconsin Governor Scott Kevin Walker has yet to sign the bill that outlaws it.

Bad news for Jean Jacques, as Walker had signed the bill into law enactment on April 22, 2014, making Jean Jacques one of the first people to be charged with the crime in Wisconsin.

The criminal offense, which was defined as publishing a sexually explicit image without consent, is categorized as a misdemeanor that can result in incarceration for nine months, and culprits may be required to pay a $10,000 fine.
