BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota lawmakers are considering legislation that would make publishing or distributing so-called "revenge porn" a crime.

Revenge porn is the term used to describe the practice of posting a nude or sexually explicit photo or video of someone on the Internet without their consent.

Democratic Senate Minority leader Mac Schneider of Grand Forks is the bill's primary sponsor.

The legislation would make it a misdemeanor to post sexually explicit photos or video of a person online. The penalty is up to one year in jail and a $3,000 fine.

The Senate already has approved the legislation. The House Judiciary Committee is slated to take testimony on the bill Tuesday.
