HB 100 -- Photographic Intrusion
This bill creates the class A misdemeanor offense of photographic intrusion. This crime is committed when a person knowingly photographs someone in a place of seclusion without that person's consent. A place of seclusion is defined as a place where a reasonable person believes he or she can disrobe in privacy without fear of being photographed, such as dressing rooms, hospital rooms, restrooms, and tanning salons. Law enforcement and correctional officers do not commit this crime if they are photographing a person pursuant to a lawful investigation.
