Should the hacker who released nude celebrity photos be considered a sex offender?

  • The amount of creepy work that went in to this job shouldn't be overlooked.

    These celebrities are people who got their private phones and computers hacked. That happens. What doesn't happen so often is reloading deleted pictures. If you don't find hacking hard try hacking and then diving into there deleted images to pull out nudes! That is a ridiculous amount of work on multiple women. Its bad enough that this guy went out just to find nudes (sick), but he took it to a whole other creepy stalker level. There is no doubt he is a sex offender. That being said maybe someone should look up and arrest the other 4chan users posting dead baby, animal cruelty pics!!!

  • Yes, sex offender it is.

    Whatever the hacker intention was, he clearly violated someone privacy. No matter if it's a celebrity or a ordinary person nude photo, no one has right to peek into someone else personal life. I think he/she is a sex offender, simply because he/she has caused some sort of psychological impact on the victim (in this case a celebrity).

  • The Hacker who released nude celebrity photos should be considered a sex offender because they knew what they were releaseing the photos without the permission of the people involved.

    A sex offender is a person who commits a crime involving a sexual act. Hacking is crime and releasing nude photos, in my opinion is a sexual act. If the Hackers had a way to prove that they didn't know the photos were nude, then it would just be a hacking crime but I don't think there is a real way to prove it.

  • No, he shouldnt be considered a sex offender.

    The hacker shouldn't be considered a sex offender. People look a nude pictures all the time. The web is filled with naked pictures of celebrities. I do think there should be stiffer punishments for people who invade other peoples privacy, but do not waste time labeling a hacker as a sex offender.

  • No legal definition of the term sex offender applies to what this person did.

    He is a criminal, but not a sex offender. These kinds of things get blown way out of proportion because of the media attention they get. If those were pictures of me, no one would care about them, and the person most likely would not get punished, while the judge would say "don't upload nude pictures on the internet if you don't want others to see them".In order to be a sex offender, you have to commit a crime involving a sexual act. There are cases where porn can make someone a sex offender, but that is when the subject of them is underage or the image/video was taken of someone without their consent. These were images that were taken either by the subjects, or consented to being taken by the subjects and VOLUNTARILY uploaded online. People, especially celebrities, should know not to take/upload any pictures they don't want to get out because people will seek them out.

  • Criminal yes, sex offender no.

    It seems that the hacker who released celebrity nude photos has broken the law in gaining access to people's private material on their computers by illegal means and then making it public. However, these are not illegal images in themselves - for example, there is no child pornography involved - so while the hacker has certainly acted immorally, distastefully and, I am assuming, illegally, he should not be considered a sex offender. He is rather an offender against privacy, online security and good taste.

  • Nudity should NOT automatically be considered sexual and even then this is too harsh

    If the photos show people having sex then that's obviously sexual. Although I think that even in that case the sex offender should be used for serious crimes of physical violence or taking advantage of young children, not for people involved in an invasion of privacy. Should he go to jail? Absolutely. Should he have to pay damages? Absolutely. But he shouldn't have to register for life.

  • How is he/she a sex offender?

    First off, we don't know if the hacker(s) is/are male or female. We can assume the perpetrator was a male, but think about it, maybe this person wanted to strike revenge on other female celebrities.

    Second, to say this person was a sex offender is going way over the top. Perhaps he/she thought exposing these people would be a fun prank to pull off, so one day they can live to tell their friends in secrecy.

  • He should be considered a hacker

    Just because you think it's creepy, doesn't make the hacker a sex offender. Releasing nude photos of someone over 18 is legal, regardless of who they are. The only rule that is broken here is hacking into someone's email or phone which does not make you a sex offender. If you don't want a nude photo released, don't take it in the first place.

  • He is not a sexual OFFENDER

    Yes hacking is a crime but just because he posted nude pictures of celebs doesnt make him a sexual offender, sexual offenders sexually offend somebody in a way and I think he didnt sexually offend people as much as he probably just morally or maybe mentally offended people. So calling him a sexual offender is wrong. But he still should be jailed and punished just not as a sexual offender.

  • He is not a sexual OFFENDER he didnt sexually offend anybody

    Yes hacking is a crime but a sex offender is somebody who sexually offended a person and I honestly dont think he sexually offended them as much as he morally or mentally offended them thus saying he isnt a sexual offender maybe a deviant but not a offender. It would be wrong to call me a sexual offender.
