WomensLaw is not just for women. We serve and support all survivors, no matter their sex or gender. Important: Even if courts are closed, you can still file for a protection order and other emergency relief. It depends. For example, if someone places a hidden camera in your bathroom or bedroom and without your knowledge, this is almost always illegal. However, if you are on a nude beach or in a public park and someone takes a video of you nude or doing sexual acts, it may not be illegal to share these images since you likely cannot expect to have privacy in that public place.
A home security technician has admitted he repeatedly broke into cameras he installed and viewed customers engaging in sex and other intimate acts. Telesforo Aviles, a year-old former employee of home and small office security company ADT, said that over a five-year period, he accessed the cameras of roughly customer accounts on more than 9, occasions—all without the permission or knowledge of customers. He said he took note of homes with women he found attractive and then viewed their cameras for sexual gratification. He said he watched nude women and couples as they had sex.
