If you have been arrested in the Orlando area for a violation of Florida statute 810.14 or 810.145, commonly referred to as voyeurism and video voyeurism, you will need an attorney who is willing to focus on you and your defense. The attorneys of Finebloom & Haenel are willing to provide that level of representation.
A person who commits the act of voyerism is commonly referred to as a “Peeping Tom.” According to the Florida statute, a person commits the offense of voyeurism when he or she, with lewd, lascivious, or indecent intent, secretly observes another person when the other person is located in a dwelling, structure, or conveyance and such location provides a reasonable expectation of privacy. Video voyeurism occurs when you don’t just look, you use some type of device to record the observation.
Both voyeurism and video voyeurism are first-degree misdemeanors. A conviction is punishable by up to 1 year in the county jail and a $1000 fine.
If the arrested offender has a history of voyeurism and has been convicted for the offense two or more times, the charge may be elevated to a third-degree felony. This means you can face up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
