Florida Voyeurism Defense Attorneys
Florida Sex Crimes Defense Lawyers
Voyeurism is the act of spying on people while they are engaged in an intimate act such as sexual activity, undressing, bathing or anything else considered private in nature. A voyeur can also be coined the nickname of “Peeping Tom.” Along with an ugly nickname can come a first degree misdemeanor conviction and up to 364 days in jail if you are found guilty of a voyeurism charge.
Elements to be proved in a court of law
The state of Florida has to prove the following elements in order to prove the crime of voyeurism:
- The accused furtively witnessed, photographed, filmed, videotaped, or recorded the victim
- The act was done with a coarse, lascivious, or distasteful intent
- When the victim was witnessed, photographed, filmed, videotaped, or recorded, he or she was in a residence, building or vehicle in which he or she had a reasonable expectation of privacy
The main element a court must prove in a voyeurism case is that there was a reasonable expectation of privacy. This means that someone was inside a place where one would have to sneak up and spy to glimpse happenings inside the dwelling. Watching someone in a public place is not a crime. However, peeking into someone’s bathroom window and observing their actions without proper consent is.
