Hello, What is your question?
Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 6 months ago.
I was hoping to have heard back from you, since you did not tell me what you wished to learn. However, here's some information regarding to the charge. If this does not fully answer your question, please reply here on this question thread and I can add to my answer. Your son would be charged with a violation of Georgia's Peeping Tom/Invasion of Privacy Law. There are two statutes in Georgia's code. The first one criminalizes the act of spying on a person in places where they have an expectation of privacy. The second would criminalize his photographing or videotaping. Either section of the law is a misdmeanor with a maximum possible penalty of a year in jail.
