One of first 'revenge porn' cases heads to trial

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) - One of the first so-called revenge porn cases in Wisconsin is heading to trial.

Keslin Jean Jacques, a Milwaukee man who posted nude and seminude photos of his ex-girlfriend on the Internet after a bad breakup, is scheduled to start his trial Wednesday.

Jean Jacques, 31, was charged in April for publishing a sexually explicit image without consent. It was one of the first such cases after Gov. Scott Walker signed a new law banning the practice.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports Jean Jacques taunted his ex-girlfriend, saying she couldn't stop him from posting her photos because the governor hadn't yet signed the bill. Walker had signed it 12 days earlier.

If convicted, Jean Jacques faces up to nine months in jail and a $10,000 fine.
