What is a Voyeurism Crime?
As a South Florida attorney can explain, voyeurism is committed when a person with lewd, lascivious, or indecent intent secretly observes: another person in a private dwelling, structure, or conveyance, and such location provides a reasonable expectation of privacy; or another person’s intimate parts that are covered in a manner expressing a reasonable expectation of privacy. This is usually done out of sexual interest or for sexual gratification.
CONSEQUENCES OF VOYEURISM IN FORT LAUDERDALE
The first offense of Voyeurism in South Florida is a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months of jail and/or 12 months of probation, and a $1,000 fine.

A person with two or more prior Voyeurism convictions is guilty of Voyeurism with Prior Convictions upon a third conviction. This is a third-degree felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and/or 5 years of probation and up to $5,000 in fines.

Voyeurism Defenses in Florida
- False Allegations: Sometimes, accusers make allegations that are not true out of spite, jealousy, manipulation, or coercion. If the alleged victim’s accusations are untrue, this could be used as a basis for defense.
- No Expectation of Privacy: It is lawful to observe someone in a state of undress when that person does not have a reasonable expectation of privacy, such as when a person is topless on a public beach.
- Security Surveillance Systems: It is legal to indirectly observe another person using a security or video surveillance system if notice of the system is conspicuously posted on the premises stating that a video surveillance system has been installed or if the video surveillance system is installed in such a manner that its presence is immediately obvious.
