Mother wants to see laws on video voyeurism changed (1)
Sometime after Bishop’s first arrest, Stutesman said she became enraged that the crimes he faced were only misdemeanors. That’s when she said she started a Facebook page titled “Make Video Voyeurism A Felony & A Sex Offense!!!”
Creswell City Councilman Jacob Daniels, a local family law attorney, said he "liked" the page and began working on a plan to get a new law passed in Oregon.
“If an underage subject is being filmed by a neighbor or something like that, it’s only a misdemeanor,” Daniels said, “whereas in a lot of other states it’s a felony.”
Daniels said he wrote a letter to Oregon Senator Tim Knopp, who agreed to help draft a new law making video voyeurism involving minors a felony.
“It would serve as a stronger deterrent for crimes like this,” said Daniels. “It also would keep people locked away that are predators towards our children.”
