New Oklahoma Laws In 2016 Part IX – Revenge Porn Is Now Illegal

SB 1257 makes it illegal to disseminate private sexual images of a person without that person’s consent. In short, “revenge porn” is now illegal in Oklahoma. It’s a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and fined up to $1,000.

Note that the victim has to be at least 18 years old. If the victim is under 18, then other laws are implicated and the punishment is way worse. And, the distribution is not just limited to online postings. You can also be found guilty if you hand a photograph to someone else.
