Bill to Criminalize "Revenge Porn" Moves Through State Legislature

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, Va (WVIR) -

A bill to criminalize "revenge porn" is one step away from making it through the state legislature.

The bill, backed by Albemarle Delegate Rob Bell, makes it a class 1 misdemeanor to share illicit images of another person with the intent to harass or intimidate. Different versions have now passed with broad support in both chambers.

Lawmakers will likely approve the measure early next week.
