Customer Question
I am a US military...
I am a US military member and a victim of revenge porn by another US military member. Unfortunately, the military states that there is nothing to be done concerning my case, not even a sexual harassment case. I know this is all a new topic in the Sexual Harassment world but shouldn't the military be able to something to punish this member?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, I'm asking if, according to military law, this is a case of sexual harassment. I feel that the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator is incorrect in his statement that just because the pictures that were posted were taken during a relationship and taken with consent, that I have no case in claiming sexual harassment.
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 2 years ago

I disagree with the SARC that this is not a crime. I can understand why they claim it is not "sexual harassment"...since the military terms sexual harassment as the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favors

That is NOT what you are describing. So it is not sexual harassment.

But it is a crime, in my opinion. It is a violation of Art 134, UCMJ, conduct that is prejudicial to the good order and discipline of the armed forces or of a nature to bring discredit to the armed forces

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
