Maybe generations ago had it right; girls/women did not dress sexy for good reason. Proper dress was skirts of a length below the knees and no low-cut tops, etc. Yeah, I know, I'm gonna catch a few flames for this like; "I have to right to dress the way I want, etc". Yes, you do have the right. But you can't control who looks at you. You may like a young handsome man to notice you, but you will also get all men to notice you. It's primal. It's human nature. Yeah, what this guy did was wrong. And it should be dealt with. But still, proper dress will alleviate a lot of this problem.

Surprised the judge couldnt have come up with some means to jail this creep or fine the guy so he will think twice about doing it again..
Something along the lines of =

Oh please. Don't even go there. This guy needs to have his a$$ kicked for about 8 hours then jailed for a long time.

Yes the guy is a pervert to say the least, but after ready the article, I would have to concur with the judge that no crime was committed....of course he's got his name and picture all over the place....that in itself is going to open problems for him in the future!

I disagree, and I think its the judge's interpretation of the law that's more at fault than the law itself.

Sure, one can take photos in a public area, and one who appears in public consents to photos. But how do you conclude that a part of the body that you cover with clothes is a public area? The mere fact that he had to "bypass" her clothing to take the photo is pretty good evidence that the subject of the photo was not in public view and that therefore she had a reasonable expectation of privacy.

Particularly since its the genital area we're talking about -- he wasn't taking pictures of her ears under her hat!

This is a good example of a judge who doesn't understand the difference between the letter of the law and the spirit of the law. Either that or he let his law clerk write the opinion. To say that the right to privacy doesn't apply here is ignorant and just plain ridiculous.

The judge is an idiot and the man worse than a peeping Tom. Anyone taking a picture up the dress of a woman or girl is a sex offender and and should face the consequences of that. Since the laws are all screwy on that subject people need to do the right thing and a swift kick to the "familyjewels" or the hand holding the cell phone seems to be the only deterrent.
