Revenge Porn Conviction Puts Noe Iniguez, L.A.'s Douchebag Boyfriend, in Jail

Judge David Fields has sentenced one of Los Angeles' nightmare boyfriends, Noe Iniguez — who posted his ex-girlfriend's nude photos on her employer's Facebook page and slammed her as a "slut" in hopes of getting her fired — to one year in jail after a vigorous prosecution by the Los Angeles City Attorney's office.

It's a warning to others thinking of hurting someone this way, and the very first such conviction sought by City Attorney Mike Feuer under California's year-old revenge porn statute. The law has been in effect since October of 2013, but Iniguez maybe didn't get word:

The 36-year-old Iniguez was prosecuted by Deputy City Attorney Brad Pregerson for a host of wrongheaded violations of the law, including ignoring two restraining orders by a judge to stay away from his ex-girlfriend, and violating the new state law.

Judge David Fields not only ordered him to spend one year in jail (we'll see if this guy gets out of Men's Central Jail in a week or two because of overcrowding), but Iniguez also must attend domestic violence counseling and entirely drop his favorite hobby of bothering the unnamed victim.

According to a statement released moments ago by City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan:

Iniguez, using an alias, allegedly began posting derogatory comments about his ex-girlfriend on her employer’s Facebook page. In March, 2014 Iniguez allegedly posted a topless photograph of the victim on her employer’s Facebook page which was accompanied by a message that called the victim a “drunk” and a “slut” and encouraged her firing from the company. 

Add to that the fact that he was being a pill for a very long time before he tried to get her fired. The victim, the attorneys say, was repeatedly harassed by Iniguez, including sending a lot of nasty text messages after their four-year relationship split apart.

There's been some controversy over whether this law will survive a First Amendment challenge if it makes it to a higher court. But Feuer seems to have kept narrowly to a specific case in which somebody was trying to hurt the life and economic well-being of another. Feuer said in the statement: 

“California’s new revenge porn law gives prosecutors a valuable tool to protect victims whose lives and reputations have been upended by a person they once trusted. This conviction sends a strong message that this type of malicious behavior will not be tolerated.”
