A San Diego man has been charged with operating a revenge porn website that let people anonymously post explicit photographs of others in an effort to extort money from those whose privacy was breached.
Kevin Christopher Bollaert, 27, was arrested Tuesday by California Department of Justice agents on 31 felony counts of conspiracy, identity theft and extortion. Authorities say he earned tens of thousands of dollars from a pair of websites he operated in the scheme.
Bollaert created the site ugotposted.com a year ago, according to court documents. The site, which was inactive Wednesday, displayed thousands of nude pictures without the permission of those photographed, investigators said.
