The fight against revenge porn

It has been a challenge to regulate laws on revenge porn, which is apparent in the Ian Barber case.

According to huffingtonpost.com Ian Barber was accused of posting his ex-girlfriend’s nude photos to Twitter and sending them to her employer and sister.
The situation then gets a little sticky, here’s why.

Barber claims he got her permission to post the pictures but she claims that isn’t the case.

Barber was charged with aggravated harassment, dissemination of unlawful surveillance and public display of sexual material, but the case was thrown out.

“The Court concludes that the defendant’s conduct, while reprehensible, does not violate any of the criminal statutes under which he is charged,” Criminal Court Judge Steven Statsinger wrote in the decision.
