HB18-1264 - Changes To Revenge Pornography Crimes

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning measures to clarify the scope of revenge porn criminal offenses.

Currently, Colorado criminalizes posting nude images of another person for harassment purposes or for pecuniary gain. The bill makes the following changes to those crimes:

 

  • Adds images of sex acts that may not include nude images;
  • Removes the requirement that the defendant intend to inflict serious emotional distress;
  • Removes as an exception to the crimes that the image relates to a newsworthy event; and
  • Clarifies that the images subject to the crimes may be disclosed by law enforcement personnel, human or social services personnel, prosecutors, and court personnel in the course of their normal business.
    (Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
