In the country's toughest revenge porn ruling to date, UGotPosted operator Kevin Bollaert was sentenced to 18 years in prison on Friday, the L.A. Times reports.



In February, the 28-year-old San Diego man was convicted of 21 counts of identity theft and six counts of extortion, crimes connected to a revenge porn scheme where Bollaert posted nude photos of women submitted by angry ex-lovers and then charged hundreds of dollars for the images to be taken down.


Let this be a lesson to those who think that can get away with crimes because they are safely sitting behind a keyboard.

This guy is a complete scumbag, helping bitter exes ruin lives.

I am all about the punishment fitting the crime and something tells me what happens to this guy in jail will be fitting indeed.

Let's not let a few immature, frat boy, date rape types, ruin what for some of us is a fun, PRIVATE, intimate game.

I think that this is a crime just like any other sexual assault.

I agree, but people do foolish things sometimes.
They shouldn't be victimized like this because of it!

I'm all for a free internet but not when it's abusing people like that. Good he deserves it, and is lucky someone didn't take justice into their own hands, as am sure many thought about that.

Blaming the victims won't do a thing. X amount of years ago this didn't happen on the net for obvious reasons, people weren't prepared for a thing that was once shared between private associations without the risk of mass distributing(unless celeb paparazzi deals). It's going to take time for people to understand these abuses and protect themselves. No ones safe from being exposed if it's on an internet connected medium: Recall the Cloud hackings.

My ex wanted to take nudes of me when we were happily married. It's for this very reason I said no. I always worried if we divorced I'd wind up on a revenge site and I wasn't about to let that happen! I did make an audio tape, but I made sure to take it with me when he left!

I thought he got nailed by the judge more for the way he charged people to take down their photos. That was extortion and not very nice. I bet if he just took down pics when requested then he'd still be walking around free right now.

Definitely a possibility. There was another revenge site operator who was recently sent to prison. This one would hack into your account and steal your photos and put it up on his sites. He had a hacker who was employed by him to do the hacking. Hunter Moore


Seems this guy here, for this thread, was arrested on counts of Identity theft, Conspiracy, and Extortion.

Once you have taken that picture and hit send you have no reasonable epectation of privacy

You might as well have have just posted it to Facebook yourself

Phones can be hacked,stolen, lost,. your phone or the person u sent the pic to.

I grew up in the Polaroid days so we did not have this problem

But I'm still not sure they arrested the right guy or guys .why aren't the exs being arrested

As much as this crime should be treated like an assault, sadly, in many states, it's treated as harassment. Go figure.

My personal opinion is they should be, but I don't see it happening. You'd think they'd look at it from a revenue point of view, if anything, as motivation to arrest them, but my guess is they're too lazy, unless if the women harass the cops to the point where they will finally arrest them just to shut them up.

Isn't it simply a civil matter?

18 years seems excessive to me. I could see a huge civil suit, but I have seen murderers get less time.

a reply to: MetallicusIt's in county, not actual prison, which means they expect him to parole out in less than 5 years.

On a side note, let's hook up for a beer sometime, neighbor. I live in Anderson, but your Avatar screams West Side! lol.

I think a lot of the time was for the conspiracy and the extortion more than for the pics themselves.
