STL News (May 17, 2018)
The Missouri General Assembly passed legislation to protect victims whose private, intimate photos are released without their consent. The legislation, House Bill 1558, includes policy provisions originally included in legislation sponsored by State Sen. Jill Schupp, D- Creve Coeur.
“Today’s laws should keep up with today’s technology,” said Sen. Jill Schupp. “We live in a world where any phone can be used to take a picture, store it and share it with the world at the press of a button. When that technology is used to harm or threaten someone, we must have common-sense laws in place to protect people’s privacy.”
