Man Sentenced In ‘Revenge Porn’ Case

A Minnesota man has been sentenced under a new law that will attempt to hold people accountable for revenge porn.
  39-year-old Michael Weigel was sentenced to four months in jail and three years of probation. He was convicted on one count of felony nonconsensual dissemination of private sexual images.
     Weigel allegedly created a fake Facebook account under his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend’s name, friending mutual acquaintances, then posted naked pictures of the woman. He pleaded guilty in August.
     Weigel cited depression and alcohol as contributing factors.
