The new law targets the practice of posting explicit images of people online as a way to embarrass them or cost them a job.

The new law makes it a misdemeanor to disseminate a nude picture without the subject’s consent, regardless of whether the subject granted permission to capture the image. The act would be punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and nine months in jail.

Walker signed the bill and a number of others in private with only invited guests.
