revenge porn website eoperator convictedA San Diego man who prosecutors say ran a "revenge porn" website featuring nude pictures of women often posted by jilted ex-lovers was convicted on Monday of identity theft and extortion charges, prosecutors said.

Kevin Boellart, 28, was found guilty on 27 felony counts by a San Diego County Superior jury after 2-1/2 days of deliberation, according to the California Attorney General's Office, which prosecuted the case.

Jurors were unable to reach verdicts on one count each of identity theft and conspiracy.

Boellart, who was taken into custody after the verdict, faces a maximum of 20 years in prison when he is sentenced on April 3.

Boellart was arrested in 2013, shortly after California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a first-in-the-nation law targeting so-called revenge porn websites. Prosecutors said he was the first defendant prosecuted under the law.
