BATH (BDN) -- A 23-year-old Bath man has been charged under Maine’s ‘revenge porn’ law with emailing sexually explicit photos of his ex-girlfriend to another person.

Jonathan A. Moss was issued a summons on Thursday for unlawful dissemination of certain images, and arrested for violation of conditions of release, Bath Police Lt. Robert Savary said Tuesday.

The alleged victim is an adult female, according to Savary.

The case is Bath’s second since the state passed the “revenge porn” law in 2015, but the circumstances are different this time, Savary said.

In September 2016, a West Bath man pleaded guilty to posting photos of partially nude women online after he took the photos from another man’s cellphone.
