Voyeurism ORC § 2907.08

Definition of Voyeurism:

  • Invading the privacy of another,
  • For the purpose of sexual arousal or gratification

Overview and Potential Penalties:

The law prohibiting voyeurism is aimed at penalizing “peeping toms.” Voyeurism is a misdemeanor of the third degree, which is punishable by up to 60 days in jail and a maximum penalty of $500.
