Hunter Moore, the fame-hungry operator of a revenge porn site known as Is Anyone Up, could spend the next seven years in prison after pleading guilty to hacking and identity theft charges, federal prosecutors told the Associated Press. Moore was first arrested in California in January but he will not not be charged under a new state law that specifically targets revenge porn.

Moore, 28, admitted to paying his co-defendant to steal nude pictures from email accounts of multiple women then posting those pictures online without their permission. His now-defunct IsAnyoneUp.com is the best known of a number of sites that have made it possible for jilted lovers to harass, humiliate and abuse their former partners by sharing sensitive pictures of them with an audience of millions.

While claiming to verify that each person in the photos was over 18 years old, Moore’s site also included their full name, the city where they live, links to their social media profiles and other identifying information that aimed to give the picture a prominent place within Google’s search results.

Moore, who Rolling Stone described as “the most hated man on the Internet” in 2012, sought to transform himself into a kind of new media personality, briefly working as a disc jockey and frequently posting pictures of himself doing drugs at parties.

Now, though, he faces a mandatory minimum of two years and a maximum of seven years in federal prison. Moore could also face an additional $500,000 fine and three years of probation after his release.

The news on Moore’s fate comes only weeks after San Diego resident Kevin Bollaert was convicted on identity theft and extortion for posting naked pictures of men and women alike then charging the victims to take their images down.
