LOS ANGELES — Revenge porn king Hunter Moore, founder of IsAnyoneUp.com, has agreed to plead guilty on charges of hacking and identity theft.

Federal prosecutors said Wednesday that Moore faces at least a two-year prison sentence.

He was arrested by FBI agents and indicted by a federal grand jury on claims that he and accused hacker, Charles "Gary" Evens, conspired to hack into people’s emails to steal their nude photos and post them online.

According to a 15-count indictment, Moore was named in a conspiracy to "access a protected computer without authorization to obtain information for private financial gain."

It alleges that Moore’s IsAnyoneUp.com revenge site posted nude photos taken from Yahoo and Gmail email addresses that Evens hacked into for a reported fee of $200 per week. The most Evens earned was reportedly $900.

The court document said Evens "would gain unauthorized access to the email accounts of hundreds of victims by various means, including 'hacking' into the victims' accounts, and obtain information, including nude pictures, belonging to the victims and stored on the victims' accounts.”

Industry attorney Marc Randazza of Randazza Legal Group, who filed civil cases on behalf of the website's victims, told XBIZ: "I have never really been able to figure out what motivated this guy. Although I had a case against him and was really against what he was doing, I feel no joy in knowing that he will likely go to prison."
