McCabe Bill To Expand Voyeurism Definition Passes House

A bill authored by Representative Gina McCabe of Goldendale to further penalize voyeurism received approval from the Washington State House Thursday.  McCabe’s bill addresses the practice of “upskirting,” where someone uses their mobile device to take a photo or record video under individuals’ skirts.  Under current law, it must be proven a person was engaged in voyeurism for the purpose of arousal or sexual gratification.  McCabe’s bill would eliminate that provision, and create a crime of voyeurism in the second degree.  House Bill 1200 moves on to the Senate for further consideration.
