Georgia appeals court says ‘upskirting’ not against the law

Posted By Staff

Date: July 25th, 2016

upskirtATLANTA – A man admitted he surreptitiously took cellphone video up a woman’s skirt while she shopped at a grocery store, but a Georgia court said he didn’t break the law.

A divided Georgia Court of Appeals this month tossed out the conviction of former grocery store employee Brandon Lee Gary, who recorded videos up a woman’s skirt — known as “upskirting” — while she shopped.

The 6-3 majority opinion said Gary’s behavior, while reprehensible, doesn’t violate the state’s invasion of privacy law, under which he was prosecuted.

In a ruling issued July 15, Judge Elizabeth Branch said it is “regrettable that no law currently exists which criminalizes Gary’s reprehensible conduct.”  More

On a recent visit to the venue, in Semarang on Java island, traditional Indonesian “bakso” — a type of meatball — bobbed in a murky soup in one toilet, while a second contained a brightly-coloured, alcohol-free cocktail.

For those who found the whole experience too nauseating, there was a sick bag hanging by the entrance.  More
