BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Governor Rick Scott on Thursday signed the Florida’s new Revenge Porn Bill into Law.

The Bill was drafted and submitted by our Agent Dan Ogden of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and sponsored by State Representative Tom Goodson of Brevard County.

Revenge Porn occurs when someone posts a nude photograph of another person on the internet without their permission with the intent to embarrass, humiliate, or harass, when there is a personal identifier of the victim attached to the photograph.
