If convicted, Bradshaw faces 2 years and a $5000 fine for each count of distributing revenge porn, under Maryland's laws. He is charged with 50 counts of posting such images to Reddit forums, like r/DegradeThisPig and r/needysluts.

The charging document goes into some detail, if you have the stomach for it, as he posted them to subforums pertaining to sexual activity, humiliation, degradation, and race, though the numerous racial epithets are redacted.

The mayor of Cambridge, Maryland is facing 50 counts of distributing revenge porn. The state prosecutor, Charlton T. Howard III, announced the charges on Monday, saying that Andrew Bradshaw created multiple accounts on Reddit to distribute the content.

The charges allege that Bradshaw, 32, posted nude photographs on the site of a roughly 26-year-old woman with whom he had a past romantic relationship, and were accompanied by captions "with racial slurs and sexually explicit language."

The photos were uploaded under accounts he created with usernames that included variations of the name and birthdate of his alleged and currently unnamed victim, and posted to multiple "subreddit" forums "related to sexual activity, humiliation, degradation, race, and other topics," according to a press release from the state attorney. "DegradeThisPig" and "Slut" were among the subreddits the photos were posted to.

Bradshaw's actions, the prosecutor said, are in violation of the state's revenge porn statute, which prohibits nonconsensual distribution of such photographs. If Bradshaw is convicted, he could face up to two years of jail and a $5,000 fine for each count.

Apparently, this joker was just elected last year, becoming Cambridge's youngest-ever mayor.
