Connecticut Clamps Down on Peeping Toms


The Constitution State has a new message for people in-state who are compelled to secretly watch others: Voyeurs will go to jail, and for a long time.

The new bill, if approved by the Senate, will increase the current maximum prison sentence for people convicted of voyeurism crimes, reported the Associated Press.

The House of Representatives on Tuesday voted 145-0 in favor of the legislation, which also extends the statute of limitations if a victim discovers a recording of their image later. Someone could be prosecuted five years after the image was discovered.

The new bill has a harsher penalty if the victim is younger than 16 years old.
