May -- few things it's humiliating is being a victim of what is now called revenge port -- intimate pictures or videos and up on web sites. Without the permission of those now being seen by the world. If there was little the law could do about it. Until now. The man behind one of the leading and most controversial forums -- it. We talked to two women who have been trying to put him behind bars for years. Here's ABC's Neal Karlinsky. Come -- alcohol. To take care for the rest -- -- When we first met hunter -- more he was brash unpredictable and relishing the title of professional life ruin her. I'm charged in this in my business -- so -- can I can write off my alcoholism have been there between all the boos and tattoos as a sleep in. -- taxes and phone call ruthlessly. The so called god father of revenge -- was adamant that while he's business was despicable. It was completely legal. -- business -- a Twitter to see what kind of naked people people want to see it for two years Nightline has been following Moore's controversial career and the people left in its wake. It was extremely difficult for my whole family wedding in just my diet -- victimized it was really the entire family -- that impacts everybody in the victim's life Charlotte. The law's daughter was one of Moore's alleged victims it's embarrassing to know that they've seen that photo. And they know what I look like now topless because -- that -- her picture like thousands of others displayed on the web site is -- one up dot com topless and against her will. Transforming Charlotte laws from ordinary California mother to anti revenge porn crew cedar. Revenge -- he's generally when a person sends the nude pictures of an ex girlfriend or boyfriend to be -- -- without their knowledge just to humiliate them more holds the questionable distinction out. Bringing revenge -- -- into the mainstream. Would you -- environment what's there. It is and nude photographs that people taking themselves and anonymously submitted and -- -- and put that content that is and it's earth. On the hospital -- public humiliation. That is and you are fine with blasting it out and there is sickly ruining in some cases other people. I mean to me I don't know these people so and it's. Kind of anonymous to me I think. The people submitting -- are the ones who should be you know feeling bad when they do -- specimens button lets you know empathy. No they're just keep their characters and avatars and icons on the screen. Charlotte laws always maintained that her daughter was hacked but for years some refuse to believe that. Her daughter's nude photo wasn't texted or shared to begin -- During our time with more many victims claimed they -- being wronged by ex boyfriends they were being robbed of personal photos stored on their own computers. But war was adamant. People -- claims all the time your photo shopping from your hacking if I didn't know how to -- And my site would be a lot more successful and is. But any claims -- hacking and I mean. I mean this is people pointing fingers not taken responsibility for what. The pictures that they've taken of themselves. I mean I get a 150 submissions -- -- I'd kill me attack. But Charlotte laws says she never bought it for more than two long years she built a key piece of her -- on the side and eventually met with the FBI. -- even started calling her the Erin Brockovich of revenge -- And then late last week she got a surprise almost as big as the moment her daughter's embarrassing photo was posted. The FBI arrested -- more and another man 25 year old Charles Evans -- up fifteen count federal indictment. Accusing -- of what he always denied stealing nude photos by hacking according to investigators to obtain more photos to popularly this site. More allegedly instructed Evans to gain unauthorized access to hacking into victim's email accounts. Were sent payments to Evans in exchange for nude photos. Obtained unlawfully from the victims' accounts -- -- on the Internet to be entertaining but the man who made his name humiliating people is now free on 100000. Dollars bond. Released into the custody of his parents the 27 year old is not allowed to use his tool of choice a computer. Pending trial. And while the FBI won't comment on the specifics of their case one relentless California mom feels like she just got her own bit of revenge. I was ecstatic when the arrests happened a few days ago and I've talked to many of the victims from our group and everyone health as a static as well. And I'm really hoping that they will -- some time in jail. Today's Charlotte laws is proud to be -- -- wars worst nightmare. Mother and daughter are now part of the official case against more. And Charlotte says she personally found nearly a half dozen other victims now listed in the federal indictment against him. And very happy that. The plot to hack into people's emails was uncovered. She's now pushing for new laws but legislating revenge -- out of existing -- is no small task. More originally left is popular site not because he was threatened -- sued but because he was bought out. You have to show and clear certain hurdles. In order to prosecute them for their contents attorney Mark Geragos is prosecuting revenge porn website operators -- -- easy because. They are generally protected by this -- laws that allow YouTube to host other people's contents. It's ironic. That -- what he ultimately -- -- Filed on here criminally is not what people find the most offensive I -- which is what in the site itself. But instead the kind of Al Capone treatment which is the hacking of the identity theft. Hunter Moore who do you still love to talk isn't saying much these days when we last met he still seemed to think public humiliation. And was a great business model. I think at some point when you get older you might look -- at the person you are now with -- some regret -- -- grow and change as a person but right now. And this time. And -- -- full advantage of people's mistakes and what -- experienced. More is due back in federal court next month he faces up to five years in prison if convicted. I'm Neal Karlinsky for Nightline. In Seattle.
