upskirt Georgia

Summary: Due to a technicality in the wording of a law in Georgia, taking photos up a woman’s skirt in public is not illegal.

Georgia has a blaring hole in their laws in that the Peach State completely lacks an upskirting law. Women in and traveling to the state are not protected if someone should happen to take a picture up their skirt.

The state’s Court of Appeals ruled that upskirting in a public place is not an invasion of privacy. The case concerned a man arrested for taking photos in Macon but there are other cases on other Georgia towns that may get a different ruling.

Georgia State University Law Professor Tanya Washington said, “You’ve given people license to continue this kind of behavior until the next legislative session which is not until next year.” The judges ruled in a 6-3 opinion to require state lawmakers to correct the wording of the law. One lawmaker said the legislature will make it a priority to fix this loophole first thing in the spring.

Georgia senator Vincent Ford said, “So we’re going to have six months or so where these creeps can run around doing this stuff.”

Women may want to think twice about what they wear in public until the law is changed. If women choose to wear a skirt or dress in public, they should at least be aware of their surroundings.
