    [​IMG] KNSD Kevin Bollaert, 28, was found guilty of 27 felony counts for creating a so-called revenge porn website.
    He won’t be getting off on this sleazy scheme any time soon.

    A San Diego perv faces up to 20 years in prison after being convicted of 27 felony counts for managing a “revenge porn” website.

    Kevin Bollaert, 28, ran a now-defunct site called U Got Posted, where he encouraged men to send naked pictures of ex-lovers to get revenge. Bollaert linked to the social media accounts of women he posted. When women complained to Bollaert, he directed them to another website, Change My Reputation, which charged up to $350 to remove the pics.

    Bollaert posted more than 10,000 pictures on the site between December 2012 and September 2013, and earned tens of thousands of dollars from victims.

    Bollaert’s lawyer called the site “gross,” “sleazy” and “immoral” even while trying to defend its legality.

    [​IMG] ugotposted.com Kevin Bollaert posted more than 10,000 pictures of naked women without their consent on his now-defunct webpage U Got Posted.
    He was convicted Monday of 21 counts of identity theft and six counts of extortion, and it took a court clerk 20 minutes to read the list of his convictions aloud.

    This case makes California the first state to prosecute someone for running a revenge porn page, although several other people nationwide have been convicted for posting individal pictures, NBC San Diego reported. Fifteen other states have criminal laws against revenge porn.

    I bet if he didn't ask the $350 for the removal of the pics he wouldn't be doing jail time.

    The safer business plan would have been to charge the posters of the pics a nominal "publishing" fee. No blackmail, no fuss, no muss.

    Lets face it, he's a scumbag. These chicks were givers and he tried to burn em.

    Hope they film his prison rape and then blackmail him not to post it online. Justice will be served.
