The court says a privacy law doesn't apply in the camera-under-the skirt case.
i guess if foul language cannot be tolerated in a store, then this must also hold true, as unexpected as it seems.He was charged with being a "Peeping Tom" under a statute that prohibits anyone from using photographic, electronic or video equipment in a clandestine manner for any "illegal, illegitimate, prurient, lewd or lascivious purpose with the unlawful and willful intent to view, watch, gaze or look upon any person without the knowledge and consent of such person."
The key factor is that the statute requires that the person viewed be "in a place where there is a right to a reasonable expectation of privacy."
In January 2007, Tulsa County District Judge Tom Gillert ordered Ferrante's felony charge dismissed. That was based upon
a determination that "the person photographed was not in a place where she had a reasonable expectation of privacy," according to an appellate ruling issued last week.
