Marine Linked To 'Marines United' Nude Facebook Photos Group Gets 10-Day Jail Term After Revenge Porn Scandal

Marine Linked To ‘Marines United’ Nude Facebook Photos Group Gets 10-Day Jail Term After Revenge Porn Scandal

When news about the naked photo scandal emanating from the closed 30,000-member Facebook group called “Marines United” first broke, it wasn’t clear what the fallout would be. However, it was reported that the names of 55 Marines possibly linked to the naked photo scandal had been given to investigators. Sixty-two cases involving active-duty Marines have been passed on to investigators.

As reported by the Inquisitr, outrage arose after it was uncovered that a Facebook group named “Marines United” featured naked photos of female Marines, including the names of the nude women, their Marine rankings, and sometimes their locations while on active duty in the Marine Corps. After the “Marines United” Facebook group was shut down, up popped “Marines United 2.0” on Facebook, which was also known as MU 2.0, where nude photos of female Marine Corps members were defiantly still posted.

Some of the female victims of the “Marines United” naked photo and video scandal, such as Savannah Cunningham, did not let the controversy stop her dream of becoming a Marine. A nude video of Savannah was posted to the “Marines United” Facebook group, as reported by the New York Times. After that point, Savannah had trouble from folks who watched her “Marines United” Facebook naked video, which was a case of “revenge porn” when Savannah’s ex-boyfriend loaded the video to “Marines United.”

Now, at least one Marine who shared nude photos of women on the “Marines United” Facebook page is paying the price for doing so, according to the New York Daily News.

On June 29, a male Marine Corps member received a 10-day jail sentence for being linked to the “Marines United” naked photo-sharing scandal and lost three ranks, as well as nearly a month in the Marine Corps. The name of the Marine Corps member was not released to the public. The man’s “administrative separation” basically means he was fired from the Marines for his role in the nude photo scandal.

In addition, two other Marines received separations from the Marines, and 67 Marines have been implicated in the naked photo scandal.
