Introduced in Senate (11/28/2017)
Ending Nonconsensual Online User Graphic Harassment Act of 2017 or the ENOUGH Act
This bill amends the federal criminal code to make it a crime to knowingly distribute (or intentionally threaten to distribute) an intimate visual depiction of an individual with knowledge of or reckless disregard for the individual's lack of consent, reasonable expectation of privacy, and potential harm; and without a reasonable belief that such distribution touches a matter of public concern.
It imposes criminal penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to five years, or both—on a violator.
