California man convicted for running ‘revenge porn’ sites

A San Diego jury convicted Kevin Bollaert of 21 identity theft and six extortion counts for running websites called YouGotPosted.com and ChangeMyReputation.com.  Prosecutors said that the first site posted nude or sexually explicit pictures of women, often taken by a former intimate partner, while the other site promised to take down those photos in exchange for money.

Bollaert, 28, who has not yet been sentenced, could face up to 24 years in prison.
