My ex-lover hit me with his car, sent my husband revenge porn: suit

  A jilted businessman struck his married ex-lover with a car — then launched a revenge-porn attack against her for good measure, a Queens lawsuit charges. The woman, referred to as “F.V.” in court papers, claims that her former lover and boss, the owner of Tesco Fire Services in Woodhaven, went off the rails when he found out she was back with her husband. The suit refers to the Tesco owner only as “T.S.,” but he is identified as Terry Seecharan in corresponding charges filed in Queens criminal court. The woman and Seecharan “engaged in a short-lived intimate relationship” while she was separated from her husband in 2016, and she was made CEO of the company around the same time, her lawsuit alleges. But F.V. quickly discovered that Seecharan was possessive and controlling, prompting her to end things in July 2017, the suit claims. Seecharan “was unable to live with…

Revenge porn the ‘fastest-growing issue’ for youngsters in Dundee as kids under 16 report abuse

  Children under the age of 16 are among several reported victims of “revenge porn” in Dundee. A total of 23 people have reported the non-consensual sharing of intimate images or threats to do so since new legislation – which means anyone convicted of sharing intimate images without consent could face up to five years in prison – came into force. Of the 23 reports, four involved children aged under 16. A further three reports involved young people aged between 16-19. While the age of consent is 16, pornographic images of anyone under the age of 18 are illegal under UK law. Laurie Matthew, manager at confidential children’s support service Eighteen and Under, said revenge porn was one of the “fastest growing” issues for young people in Dundee. She said: “We believe very few people actually report it because of the intimidation that comes with it. “That’s enough for young…

Revenge porn used to shame victims, extort money

  Bill Moak, Consumer Watch Published 7:00 a.m. CT June 30, 2018 CLOSE   Facebook is testing out a new program to combat revenge porn, but there’s a catch. USA TODAY REVENGE PORN(Photo: WUSA) Last year, a court in Washington state awarded $8.9 million to a woman whose former online romantic partner allegedly began harassing her after their relationship ended. Courtney Allen and her husband sued Arizona resident Todd Zonis after Allen broke off the online dalliance. The Allens accused Zonis of posting intimate photos and videos, sending them to friends and family and initiating a campaign of harassment. After a jury sided with the Allens and awarded the record-setting verdict, Zonis denied the charges and appealed. The jury award was the largest to date involving what’s been called “revenge porn” or nonconsensual pornography, the act of sending photos, videos and intimate information out over the internet after a relationship…

Revenge porn: North Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner appeals for victims’ stories to secure change in law

  Victims of revenge porn are being asked to share their stories with North Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, as part of a campaign to close a ‘legal loophole’ in order to help protect their identities. Julia Mulligan has today launched an anonymous survey to gather evidence and bolster her efforts to see Image Based Sexual Abuse, or ‘Revenge Porn’, reclassified from a communications offence to a sexual offence. One in three allegations since 2015 are believed to have been withdrawn, according to a Freedom of Information requests noted by the NYPCC. It is believed this is often due to the lack of anonymity under the current classification of victim’s identities, and the distress this causes. Mrs Mulligan said: “The law on revenge porn is fundamentally flawed. It needs to change and this survey will provide me with more evidence in my campaign to ensure the legal loophole is closed…

Google and Friends Blamed for Blocking Vote on New York Revenge Porn Bill

  Photo: Getty The New York state Senate failed to vote on a revenge porn bill on Wednesday, and those advocating for the legislation blame Google and a tech lobbyist group for pressuring lawmakers to abandon it in the final hour. The bill, if passed, would have criminalized the non-consensual distribution of intimate photos in the state, which is one of the last remaining holdout states to make revenge porn illegal. “In New York state we have laws that protect financial information, medical information, corporate secrets,” victims’ rights attorney Carrie Goldberg told Gizmodo in an email. “Hell, it’s technically illegal to record at a Beyoncé concert and post that to the Internet, but yet there is no protection when it comes to sexual privacy.” On Tuesday, the New York Assembly unanimously approved the bill. Wednesday was the last day for the Senate to vote before the end of the legislative…
