SACRAMENTO - Hunter Moore, the Woodland man who owned and ran a revenge porn site, was released from Sacramento County Jail Friday night.
Moore, 27, appeared in Sacramento federal court earlier in the day for his arraignment, but did not enter a plea. The Department of Justice (DOJ) said Moore was released on a $100,000 bond signed by his parents. He is not allowed to use a computer or direct a third party to use a computer while out on bail, according to the DOJ.
Moore was arrested by the FBI at his Woodland home on Thursday. Agents also arrested 25-year-old Charles Evans of Studio City. Evens pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles federal court Friday.
Moore ran a now-defunct website called isanyoneup.com that posted explicit photos, including some submitted by revenge-minded ex-spouses and lovers without permission of the people depicted.
A federal indictment in Los Angeles says Moore paid Evans to hack email accounts to steal nude photos that Moore then posted on his site. The 15-count indictment includes charges of conspiracy, hacking and identity theft.
If convicted, Moore and Evans could face up to five years in prison if convicted.
