Ex boyfriend and nudes?

I had an ex boyfriend who was in love with me, he was two grades above me. I’m going to be a sophomore this year and he’s going to be a senior. What if on the last day of his senior year, he leaks my nudes as payback for me breaking up with him?

    Here's the thing: Ordinarily, assuming your not underage (as the OP is ambiguous on that point as it is entirely possible for people to be held back several years) if he produced the photo he has rights to first publish under the United States Copyright Act and there's nothing you can do about that without you yourself being sued for copyright infringement. (Copyright law preempts state laws to the contrary under the 10th amendment to the U.S. Constitution.) That said, you can report this matter to the police if in fact it's under age material (i.e. you were under 18 at the time the photo was taken, noting that copyright doesn't apply to criminal contraband) but you could also face charges for conspiracy to produce child pornography or for trafficking in child pornography if you sent or received the photos in question, yourself - and the prosecutor is bound to prosecute both parties to avoid having the case thrown out on grounds of discrimination based upon sex. (i.e. they can't refuse to charge you and charge him based upon the difference of male vs. female sex). This is based upon the due process and equal protection clauses to the fourteenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This also makes the case against him weaker as testimony of a co-conspirator is inadmissible evidence at trial absent corroborating evidence regardless of whether or not the co-conspirator is charged. Mind you all of this assumes that the photos meet the definition of pornography under the Miller Doctrine (Miller v California).

    That's a crime. He would likely do jail time and have to register as a sex offender. Rightfully so.

    If he ALREADY has leaked these photos to others, he has then crossed very serious "revenge porn" and/or child porn distribution laws. His cellular phone carrier WILL FULLY cooperate with local AND FEDERAL (IF these pictures were sent to phones CROSSING state lines ) law enforcement.

    If however, he has NOT yet leaked these photos, it serves as friendly advice he:

    Delete ALL such photos because

    A) you were UNDERAGE when you took them and B) given that it IS effortlessly easy for LAW ENFORCEMENT to ACCURATELY TRACK DOWN EVERY cell number he sent such file(s) to, his complicit guilt would be easily proven---both in possession of AND distribution of child porn, which both are major prison offense felonies.

    B) There is NO such thing as complete file deletion--be it on a PC or cellular phone; it's wise he DESTROY said cellphone ,when comes time to replace it.

      Also, revenge porn laws are unconstitutional as the U.S. copyright act controls whom has rights to first publish.

    You could prosecute him and you would win.

    Alternatively you could politely ask him to delete them all so you could see they were gone. Tell him if they ever became public you would sue so he better hope he gets a good job as it will cost him lots.

    At the end of the day you have learned a life lesson in that he should not have access to them in the first place.

    Many states have "revenge porn" laws where you can be charged for sharing private photos.

    Or, you could also get ahead of the problem and remind him you were a minor, and possession of those nudes is a felony. He could be facing serious charges if he leaks them.

    That makes him a horrible person and it makes you a girl with bad judgment for letting him have nudes in the first place.

    Simply having nudes of anyone under 18 is extremely illegal. He can be sent to jail and forced to register as a sex offender. If he gets prosecuted for this, it can seriously ruin his life.

    However, sending nudes of anyone under 18 is as bad or even worse, and it doesn't always matter whether the person sending them is the person in them or not. So you could be in even more trouble than him. Get a lawyer, now.

    You contact the police and press charges. He goes to prison for distribution of child porn.

      And she goes to jail for conspiracy.

    That’s a pretty large “what if”. A whole year is a long time to hold a grudge- depending on how long you’ve been broken up, if he were to do it, he would’ve done it by now, while the wound was still fresh. If he’s smart, he wouldn’t do it because that would be considered distribution of childp0rnography. (Which you could also get in trouble for the manufacture of). Again, I think it’s a large what if and you’re probably anxious over almost nothing.
