DETROIT (WWJ) – Is it a crime to post pictures of your ex online? What about naked pictures?

WWJ’s Legal Analyst Charlie Langton explains further in the Langton Briefs.

It’s called “revenge porn” and it’s the newest form of getting back at your ex-lover after a breakup. It involves posting and identifying those nude pictures of the ex online, without the consent.

And while it may have been fun to take those sexy pictures of your former sweetheart during the good times, it could land you a year in jail during the bad times. That’s if legislation in California passes.

But some say it criminalizes a form of free-speech, and may create a situation where erotica and consent are not easily defined.

A similar bill failed in Florida, but there appears to be more support to protect sexy exes in California.

The bottom line: Cameras, bedrooms and exes don’t mix.
