CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A bill criminalizing revenge porn in New Hampshire is headed to Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan’s desk.

It makes it a crime for a person to publish, sell or otherwise distribute certain sexually explicit pictures or videos of someone else without that person’s consent. Illegal images could include someone who is partially clothed or fully nude, depending on what can be seen in the photo.

With the rise of cellphones and the Internet, sharing of private images is becoming more common.

The bill sailed through the New Hampshire House on Wednesday and has already passed the Senate.
