Voyeurism Lawyer in Phoenix

Understanding Voyeurism & "Peeping Tom" Crimes

Odds are you have heard of the term “Peeping Tom.” This comes from the legend of Lady Godiva regarding the character who watched Godiva riding while nude. In modern terms, this is referred to as a voyeur, or someone who gains pleasure (especially sexual) from watching others in secret.

This is voyeurism, an act that is illegal under A.R.S. 13-1424. Our Phoenix voyeurism attorneys at MayesTelles PLLC want our clients to fully understand the charge of voyeurism and what it means.

A person commits voyeurism when he or she:

  • Knowingly invades another person’s privacy without their knowledge or approval for sexual stimulation purposes
  • Displays or distributes video or photos knowingly produced while violating someone else’s privacy without the other person’s knowledge or approval
  • Films or photographs another person without he or she knowing or having an expectation that he or she will be photographed or videotaped
  • Invades another person’s privacy to film or photograph this individual while he or she is nude or engaging in a sexual act

Available Defenses to Voyeurism Charges

It is important for individuals charged with voyeurism to understand their rights and know what defenses may be available to them. Our team takes the time to gather the full details of your case so we can determine if the prosecution has a case or not. We have former prosecutors on our staff so we know what to look for and what can be used on your behalf to defend your rights and future.
