SAN DIEGO — A California judge determined Monday that prosecutors have enough evidence against Kevin Bollaert, the alleged owner and operator of now-defunct revenge porn website UGotPosted.com, for him to face charges of conspiracy, identity theft and extortion charges.

A spokesman for California Attorney General Kamala Harris said Bollaert appeared before San Diego County Superior Court Judge David M. Gill on Monday and will return to court July 16. The trial has been pushed back several times.

The 27-year-old has pleaded not guilty to 31 felony counts. However, prosecutors insist that Bollaert made tens of thousands of dollars humiliating victims by allowing jilted lovers or exes to post their explicit photos online for all to see.

Unlike many other revenge porn websites where the subject of the photos is anonymous, UGotPosted.com required that the poster include the subject’s full name, location, age and Facebook profile link.

Court documents allege that Bollaert created a second website, ChangeMyReputation.com, in October 2012, which he would allegedly use to extort victims by offering to remove the offending content for a fee ranging from $300 to $350.

In January Bollaert was sentenced to 15 days in jail and three years probation for an unrelated firearms case. His past crimes that include drug possession, resisting arrest and public intoxication.
