BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota lawmakers have passed legislation that would make publishing or distributing so-called “revenge porn” a crime.

Revenge porn is the term used to describe the practice of posting a nude or sexually explicit photo or video of someone on the Internet without their consent.

The legislation would make it a misdemeanor to post sexually explicit photos or video of a person online. The penalty is up to one year in jail and a $3,000 fine.

The House approved the Senate bill on Wednesday. It now goes to Gov. Jack Dalrymple’s desk for his signature.
