OKLAHOMA CITY – Legislation that makes revenge porn a crime in Oklahoma has been sent to Gov. Mary Fallin to be signed into law.

The legislation received final legislative approval Thursday when the state Senate voted 39-0 to accept amendments passed by the House.

The bill outlaws unauthorized dissemination of intimate photos or video, an act commonly referred to as “revenge porn.”

In most cases, the dissemination occurs after a relationship has ended.

A first offense is a misdemeanor and subsequent offenses are felonies.

The maximum penalty is one year in prison and a fine of $25,000.

The Cyber Civil Rights Initiative says 27 states and the District of Columbia have laws that outlaw nonconsensual pornography, or the distribution of sexually graphic images of individuals without their consent.
