OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Legislation that makes revenge porn a crime in Oklahoma has passed the state House.

House members on Tuesday voted 81-0 for the bill and sent it back to the state Senate for consideration of House amendments.

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.

The Oklahoma legislation makes it a crime to disseminate images of another person engaged in a sexual act with the intent to harass or humiliate the person.

The bill makes a first offense a misdemeanor and subsequent offenses a felony. Offenders could face up to one year in prison and a fine of $25,000.
