Miami Voyeurism Defense Attorney
Legal Consequences for a Voyeurism Charge
Voyeurism is the willful act of spying on other individuals while they are engaged in an intimate or private moment. These private moments could include undressing, bathing, or activities of a sexual nature. Acts such as voyeurism are considered an invasion of an individual's reasonable expectation of privacy. As a first degree misdemeanor, a voyeurism conviction could land you in prison for up 364 days. If you or someone you know is accused of a voyeurism related offense, it is essential that you seek out the advice and guidance of a Miami sex crime lawyer.
In a voyeurism case, the court must prove that the alleged victim had a reasonable expectation of privacy. In this regard, watching an individual in a public place is not considered an illegal act of voyeurism. However, voyeurism charges can be brought against someone if the individual spied upon was in a vehicle, building, or residence and the offending party had to go out of his or her way to witness the event. Photographing, filming, videotaping, or recording another individual during a private moment without his or her consent is also considered voyeurism. No matter what the circumstances of your case may be, a qualified defense attorney can negotiate on your behalf to have your charges dropped or you sentence lightened.
