    Revenge Porn | Kangs Sexual Offences Defence Solicitors

    Cagin Husnu of Kangs Solicitors comments on the increasing level of criminal prosecutions arising from revenge pornography, known as revenge porn or, colloquially, sextortion.

    What Is Revenge Porn? | Kangs Sexual Offences National Defence Team

    Revenge porn is a form of sexual abuse conducted by the distribution of images of a sexual nature, frequently by video, with the intent to humiliate or intimidate the victim.

    It has been used as a tool for blackmail forcing the victim threatened with the release of the material into situations such as performing acts of a sexual nature or remaining in the relationship in which the material was produced.

    Over the past decade, following the increasing use of technology, revenge porn prosecutions are increasing at a rapid rate as more and more people are using online media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

    The Law | Kangs Sexual Offences Advisory Solicitors

    Section 33 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 provides that:

    (1) It is an offence for a person to disclose a private sexual photograph or film if the disclosure is made:

    • without the consent of an individual who appears in the photograph or film, and
    • with the intention of causing that individual distress.

    A person convicted of an offence under this section faces a maximum prison sentence of two years, a fine or both.

    Additionally, a convicted person may face proceedings in the Civil Courts should the victim claim damages for breach of his or her Human Rights (Art 8 Right to Private Life), distress and potential financial loss.
