What is Voyeurism?

Voyeurism is a criminal offense involving spying on, watching, or recording someone without their consent while they are in situations where they reasonably expect privacy. In Ohio, voyeurism is taken very seriously, as it is considered an invasion of an individual's privacy and a breach of trust. Voyeurism can manifest in various ways, including:

  • Peeping Tom Activities: This may involve secretly observing someone through windows, keyholes, or other openings, usually in situations where the individual has a reasonable expectation of privacy, such as in their home.
  • Unauthorized Recording: Recording someone without consent in compromising situations, like changing rooms or bathrooms, is also considered voyeurism.
  • Distributing Explicit Content: Sharing explicit images or videos of someone without their given consent can be considered voyeurism.

What Are the Penalties for Voyeurism in Ohio?

The punishments for voyeurism in Ohio can be severe, and a conviction may have lasting consequences. The specific penalties for voyeurism can vary depending on the circumstances of the particular offense and the defendant's prior criminal history. Generally, penalties may include:

  • Misdemeanor Charges: If the voyeurism incident did not involve sexually explicit content and did not occur in a place with a reasonable expectation of privacy, it may be classified as a misdemeanor. Misdemeanor charges can lead to fines, probation, or even imprisonment.
  • Felony Charges: In more serious cases, where the offense involved sexually explicit content or occurred in places like bathrooms, changing rooms, or private residences, the charges may be elevated to felonies. Felony charges can result in substantial fines, extended probation, and significant prison time.
  • Sex Offender Registration: Convictions related to voyeurism may also require registration as a sex offender, which can have long-lasting social and professional consequences.
  • Civil Lawsuits: In addition to criminal penalties, victims of voyeurism may pursue civil lawsuits against the offender, seeking damages for emotional distress, invasion of privacy, and other related harms.

Defenses Against Voyeurism Charges

Some potential defenses against voyeurism charges may include:

  • Lack of Intent: In some cases, it may be argued that the alleged voyeur did not intend to invade another person's privacy. Mistaken identity or accidental recording may support this defense.
  • Lack of Privacy Expectation: If the alleged victim had no reasonable expectation of privacy in the location where the voyeurism occurred, this may be used as a defense.
  • False Accusations: It is possible for individuals to be falsely accused of voyeurism.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If evidence had been obtained through an illegal search and seizure, it may be inadmissible in court, potentially leading to the dismissal of charges.
  • Consent: If the victim provided consent to being observed or recorded, this could serve as a defense against voyeurism charges.

    "Patrick and his team are the only choice!"
    My husband was forced to defend himself at our home but that put him in jail. I first went with another lawyer, Mike Mills, who took my money and that was it. Feeling hopeless, I contacted Patrick’s team and they didn’t disappoint. Within 3 hours, Patrick was at jail speaking with my husband and a few days later, Patrick had him home. When you call the office, everyone helps you. You are not just another case to them; I know and experienced it. They are a team you want to be on your family’s side! Thank you Patrick and Laura and team - you are the best, thank you!

    "When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging."
    My family and I have used Patrick for different cases. A child custody as well as DUI. Initially you may feel scared and want to keep calling but in the end he has always proven that he is the best of the best. When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging. He knows what he's doing. Child custody WON! DUI best possible outcome! I wouldn't hire anyone but him. I highly recommend! Thanks Mr. Mulligan and staff!

    "Best Lawyer ever."
    Patrick Mulligan took on my case in May 1996 not knowing how things would go. My case being his first Big case. He saved my life. I have still to this day will always remember and be Thankful to him for trusting and believing in me. I was a mother of a daughter 19 months old who as killed by my boyfriend at the time. The state tried to prove me for child endangering and wanting me to serve 18 months in prison. Parick didnt know until that point what he had gotten into . Patrick did everything he could to prove I was a good mother. It was almost a year after my daughters life was taken. We went to trail and I stood on the stand with all my friends and Dr.'s. Patrick worked so hard for me and we won and here I am 15 years later . I found his web site and had to tell my story. Anyone who needs his help he will work as hard as he can for anyone he believs in. I'm so gald to see he is still in Cinti helping people. Thank you Patrick. I will talk to you soon.

    "I would recommend him to anybody."
    Patrick Mulligan is one of the few attorney's in Dayton that takes no bullshit I would recommend him to anybody
    - Justin
    "Help in the Middle of the Night"
    Mr. Mulligan made all the difference in my case. Through his yellow page ad, I was able to reach him in the middle of the night, after my ex-wife had me falsely arrested for Domestic Violence Verbal. He was prompt in coming to my assistance. He went out of his way to help reach my family so that they could get me released from holding. He answered all my questions and walked me through the entire process. He was able to get the results I was hoping for at the pre-trial, so that we did not actually have to go through an actual trial. Mr. Mulligan exceeded all my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a similar unfortunate situation. He was a Godsend for me.
