Filming up a woman’s skirt in public is legal, says US court

In a peculiar move, it was revealed in a US court that it is legal to secretly film a woman’s skirt in public without her consent.

As per the report of The Independent, it is not correct to blame a man who try and make videos of a woman’s skirt in open.

The weird rule surfaced at the time of conviction of an accused.

Brandon Lee Gary, who was trying to film a women customer from beneath her skirt and was prosecuted in 2013.

Gary appealed guilty at Houston County to the crime he did and he was convicted for the same.

On July 15, the charges against Gary were reversed as he pleaded in court that he did not violate any law.

“It is regrettable that no law currently exists which criminalizes Gary’s reprehensible conduct,” the judge was quoted as saying.

Gary constantly argued in court that he did not violated any rule and that he had filmed the woman in public.

“Unfortunately, there is a gap in Georgia’s criminal statutory scheme, in that our law does not reach all of the disturbing conduct that has been made possible by ever-advancing technology,” he judge further stated.
