Nebraska man charged under state’s new `revenge porn’ law

Nebraska News

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – A southeastern Nebraska man has been charged under a new law that makes it a crime to post pornographic images of others without their permission or to use the images for blackmail.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that 19-year-old Hayden Butcher, of Waverly, was in Lancaster County Court on Wednesday after being charged under Nebraska’s “revenge porn” law, enacted earlier this year.

Investigators say a woman reported in July that a video of her taken from video chats she had engaged in last with Butcher had been posted to a porn-sharing website.
