NORFOLK, Va. – The U.S. Navy says Sailors who wrongfully distribute or broadcast inappropriate photos will now face mandatory separation from the service.

The changes were released as a part of updated policies that make it unlawful to share intimate images of others without their permission.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that hundreds of intimate photos of female marines were posted online without their knowledge.

The Chief of Naval Personnel said there is no room in the Navy for what he calls ‘toxic behavior.’
