The owner of a “revenge porn” website, accused of posting stolen nude photos of women online, has agreed to plead guilty to federal computer-hacking and identity-theft charges, prosecutors announced Wednesday.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Hunter Moore was dubbed the “king of revenge porn” for running a website called IsAnyoneUp.com, on which explicit photos of women, stolen from their personal email accounts, were posted.

Moore, 28, also paid Charles Evans to hack into computers and steal nude photos from victims’ accounts. Evans is due to go on trial March 17.

Moore faces up to seven years in prison. He is set to appear back in court on Feb. 25.
