Holding Voyeurs 'Peeping Toms' Accountable in West Virginia
What do you do if you have been a victim of voyeurism aka "peeping Tom"? West Virginia, like most states, has yet to create a law that makes voyeurism, video or otherwise, a felony. The Federal criminal code prohibits videotaping, taking photos, filming, recording by any means, or broadcasting an image of an individual, without that individual's consent, where the individual has a reasonable expectation of privacy. Unfortunately, that code only makes it a misdemeanor, and punishable by less than one year in prison.
