Peeping Tom Statutes

Created by Laura Biber on April 03, 2016 1442

“Peeping Tom” laws are generally found in state statutes under “voyeurism.” While the elements of this offense vary from state to state, the general requirements are that: (1) the victim was not aware they were being viewed; (2) the victim was fully or partially naked; and (3) the viewing took place in an area in which the victim had a reasonable expectation of privacy. Several states also include the requirement that the viewing be done with a camera, videorecorder, etc. as opposed to just the human eye.

The Utah voyeurism statute has been mapped and may be found in the list of states.
