HB 9: Crimes and offenses; use of device to film under or through person’s clothing under certain circumstances; prohibit

Voted on Friday February 17, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

This is the 'upskirting' legislation that makes it illegal to knowingly and without consent film or photograph intimate parts.
The bill is a result of a controversial case settled in 2015 in which it was found that taking photos up a woman's skirt was not illegal.
