Posting a Private Image for Harassment, or Revenge Porn, is charged in Denver, Aurora, and Castle Rock when someone publishes an image on social media or distributes through text, a private or nude image of another. But, does publishing an image on a fetish or sexual website constitute revenge porn? That’s the question some college students are asking after finding their images posted on these types of sites. They have pointed the finger at a fellow student, who they feel has demonstrated acts of Harassment and Stalking against them. The problem is, the images that were posted on the sites with lewd captions were images the ‘victims’ had posted themselves. They did not contain nudity, nor would they be considered private, as they consented to having them elsewhere on the internet.
