Voyeurism can be charged when a person allegedly invades the privacy of another by surreptitiously eavesdropping, spying, filming, or recording another person to receive some sort of sexual gratification. Examples of this include peeping into another person’s window or filming a person who is unaware. It is vital to remember that the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that such an action was for sexual gratification. Depending on the nature of the allegations and the offender’s criminal history, voyeurism can be charged as a fifth degree felony.
Being charged with a sex crime can carry permanent consequences. If convicted, a sex crime can result in incarceration, as well as required registration as a sex offender in the state of Ohio. Anyone convicted of a sex crime must fight against a lifelong stigma, making it difficult to maintain employment, housing or permanent relationships.
