In What Cases You Are Not Guilty for Distributing Intimate Images Without Consent

While the unauthorised distribution of intimate images is generally considered a serious offence, there are certain circumstances where an individual may not be held guilty. Invictus Legal acknowledges these exceptions and provides expert legal assessment to determine the applicability of such defences:

  • Consensual Distribution: When the subject of the image has given explicit consent for the distribution. This includes scenarios where consent was given at the time of distribution.

  • Accidental Distribution: If the image was shared unintentionally or due to a misunderstanding. Cases where there was no intent to distribute, such as accidentally sending to the wrong recipient.

  • Legal Proceedings: Distribution within the context of legal proceedings where such disclosure is necessary. This includes situations like evidence submission in court cases, where the distribution is legally justified.

  • Public Interest: In rare cases, distribution might be justified if it serves a significant public interest. This defence is complex and requires careful legal examination to establish validity.

  • Age of Consent: In situations where the individuals depicted are legally consenting adults. The absence of coercion or manipulation in the creation of the image is crucial.

  • No Identifiable Subject: If the image does not identify the subject it cannot be recognised. This includes cases where the subject’s identity is completely anonymous or obscured.


Self-Distribution: Cases where the individual depicted in the image is the one distributing it. This involves scenarios where the subject of the image is also the distributor.
