Bill Making “Revenge Porn” Illegal Heads to Senate

The Senate will get the chance to vote on a measure making “revenge porn” a crime in Oklahoma. Senator David Holt’s bill advanced from committee on Wednesday. Senate Bill 1257 would criminalize the dissemination of non-consensual pornography.

“Non-consensual pornography is a destructive act that especially targets women, and it should be a crime,” said Holt.  “Our statutes often don’t contemplate modern life, and this is one of those situations.   I am grateful that so far my colleagues agree.”

Exceptions to the proposed law include law enforcement investigations and when the exposure or sexual act was committed in public or a commercial setting.

The first offense would be a misdemeanor. The second time it becomes a felony.
