– Voyeurism has been called Florida’s “peeping tom” law. The law makes it illegal to secretly observe another person in an area where that person has a reasonable expectation of privacy with any lewd, lascivious, or indecent intent. This law applies whether the person was in a home, structure or car.
– Violation of this law is punished as a first degree misdemeanor, which carries a sentence of up to 1 year in jail, 1 year on probation, and a $1,000 fine. If the accused has been convicted 2 prior times, then the crime is enhanced to a third degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison, 5 years of probation, and a $5,000 fine.
