Massachusetts Court Rules It's Legal To Take Upskirt Photos On Public Transit

Massachusetts Court Rules It's Legal To Take Upskirt Photos On Public Transit | LibertyE Global Renaissance | Scoop.it
The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court on Wednesday ruled that it is not a crime to take photos up women's skirts on public transportation because existing law only applies photographing people nude or partially nude in private, according to MassLive.

"We conclude that (the law), as written, as the defendant suggests, is concerned with proscribing Peeping Tom voyeurism of people who are completely or partially undressed and, in particular, such voyeurism enhanced by electronic devices. (The law) does not apply to photographing (or videotaping or electronically surveilling) persons who are fully clothed and, in particular, does not reach the type of upskirting that the defendant is charged with attempting to accomplish on the MBTA," the decision reads.
