I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

It is illegal if your ex-boyfriend sends your video to a third-party, your new boyfriend. This is called "revenge porn." Your ex-boyfriend can be prosecuted for distribution of the video without your consent. In the meantime, you can apply to the Court in the State where you live to stop him from releasing the video. It does not matter he lives in another State. You can apply for a Restraining Order to stop him from releasing the video.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
