Kevin Christopher Bollaer (https://oag.ca.gov/news/press-releases/attorney-general-kamala-d-harris-announces-18-year-prison-sentence-cyber) operated a 'revenge porn' web site. He also ran a second web site that solicited payments of $250 to $350 from people who wanted to have the photographs deleted. All in all, Bollaert made about $30,000 on that site.

In February Bollaert  was found guilty of six counts of extortion (stemming from the 2nd site) and 21 counts of identity theft. He faced a maximum of 23 years but was ultimately sentenced to 18 years in prison (http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/03/us/califomia-revenge-porn-sentence/index.html).

So...an 18 year sentence has 157,680 hours in it, which (assuming a profit of $30K) works out to just under 20 cents an hour. Brilliant business plan ya got there, Kevin.

(Personally, I find an 18-year sentence for this a bit much. I mean, you can rape and/or murder someone and not get this much time. 5 years for what he did would have seemed about right to me. )

The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.
