CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - It is now illegal in New Hampshire to share private sexual images of another person without his or her consent.

Gov. Maggie Hassan signed a bill Thursday to ban the practice known as “revenge porn.” Sharing an explicit image of someone else, if they can be identified, without permission will now be a felony.

Hassan called the bipartisan legislation “a common-sense step forward in our efforts to protect and maintain the privacy of Granite Staters.”

Supporters say it’s an important step to protecting people’s rights in the digital age.
