Sextortion and Non-Consensual Pornography Will Be Criminalized Under State Law – WKBW

Albany, N.Y. (WKBW) – Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today unveiled the 11th proposal of the 2018 State of the State: a comprehensive plan to outlaw “sextortion” and non-consensual pornography, often known as “revenge porn.” Under these new measures, a conviction for any of these serious offenses will require registration as a sex offender and sentences will range from a class A Misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail or three years of probation, or up to a class C Felony, punishable by up to fifteen years in prison.
