“The Maryland House of Delegates has approved legislation that would make it a crime to disseminate “revenge porn” — using private, intimate photos or videos to harass or embarrass someone, often once a relationship ends.

The bill, which passed in a 130 to 0 vote Friday morning, sets penalties for those who cause “serious emotional distress to another by intentionally placing” an identifiable pornographic image, video or recording online. Those found guilty of the crime would face up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.”
