Hodgksinson Backs Tough New Penalties for Sharing Intimate Images

Member for Cootamundra, Katrina Hodgkinson has welcomed the state government’s action to make sharing intimate images without consent a serious crime.

The government has introduced its Crimes Amendment (Intimate Images) Bill to Parliament, which will make it an offence to intentionally record or distribute, or to threaten to record or distribute, an ‘intimate image’ of a person without their permission.

Ms Hodgkinson says the move will hold controlling and vengeful offenders to account, and help end victim blaming.
