Laws covering so-called revenge porn are not fit for purpose and police still need more training, experts say.The 'experts' in question being the usual suspects, of course.
Victims should receive anonymity and laws need to include threats to share images, according to Sophie Mortimer from the Revenge Porn helpline.Yes, it's 'activists get what they want then push for redefinition to prove they were right all along' again.
Figures from 19 forces in England and Wales revealed police investigations have doubled in the last four years but the number of charges has fallen.Because the CPS knows full well that most of these cases aren't going to win over a jury?
In October 2016, Alice Ruggles, 24, was murdered by a former boyfriend who cut her throat after breaking into her home in Gateshead.
After her death it emerged that her killer, Trimaan Dhillon, had threatened to share intimate images of her online as part of a campaign of stalking and harassment.
Alice's mother, Dr Sue Hills, said threatening to share images should be made part of the law. She said her daughter may have sought help sooner if Dhillon had not held the threat over her.And she may not have needed to 'seek help' if you'd raised her with more self-respect than to take and share these sort of images in the first place.
