If you’ve been arrested for voyeurism, you could be facing serious punishments, including class 4 or 5 felony charges, a prison sentence and registration as a sex offender.
In Arizona, according to A.R.S. 13-1424, voyeurism is:
- Knowingly invading the privacy of someone else, without their knowledge, for sexual stimulation.
- Publishing, disclosing, displaying, or distributing photographs, video, or other digital media obtained through activities described in subsection A.
Subsection C of A.R.S. 13-1424 describes invasion of privacy as:
- When a person has reasonable expectation that they will not be viewed, recorded, etc.
- The person is viewed or recorded (with or without a device):
- In a state of undress or partial dress.
- Engaging in sexual intercourse or sexual contact.
- Urinating or defecating.
- In a way that captures their genitalia, buttocks, or female breast which is not otherwise visible to the public.
Here are exceptions:
- Media that is used for security, if there is a notice about recording that is clearly posted.
- Media used by correctional officers for security purposes.
- Media captured by law enforcement during a lawful investigation.
- Media captured through child monitoring devices.
