PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Hillsboro man has been sentenced to jail time after being among the first people to be convicted under Oregon’s new law banning so-called “revenge porn.”

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://bit.ly/2h2NL6Y ) that 31-year-old Benjamin Barber on Thursday was sentenced to six months in jail for uploading sexually explicit videos of a woman onto several porn websites without her consent.

He is not required to register as a sex offender.

Barber uploaded four pornographic videos of himself and the woman to nine websites. The videos were taken when the two were a couple but were uploaded after they had ended their relationship.

Prosecutors say Barber’s case was the first to go to trial in Washington County for unlawful dissemination of an intimate image.
