Man enters plea in revenge porn case

 

A New Richmond man has entered a plea in a revenge porn case.

Wyoming County Prosecutor Mike Cochrane said it is the first case in the county under the new statute, which became law last year.

Timothy McNulty, 47, pleaded no contest early last week.

According to Cochrane, McNulty sent intimate photos of an ex-girlfriend to another person.

A first offense is a misdemeanor, Cochrane reported. A second offense is a felony.

A first offense carries penalties of a fine of no less than $1,000 and no more than $5,000. There can also be jail time of up to a year.

While referred to as “revenge porn,” the prosecutor said the statute is actually called “non-consensual disclosure of private, intimate images.”

McNulty was charged in November 2017.

Lt. Will Hall of the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Department was the investigating officer.
