According to Stephanie Williams-Ortery with the James City County Police Department, officers received an anonymous tip about nude pictures posted on Twitter by the 16-year-old girl.

But there is currently no suggestion that anyone else was involved, or that she was coerced. She allegedly did not upload images of herself as “revenge porn,” which is posting sexually explicit photographs and detailed personal information about people such as ex-girlfriends.

So far, few states including New Jersey and California have explicit laws against revenge porn.
