Nebraska lawmakers are one step closer to making it a criminal offense to take pictures up a woman's skirt. The Judiciary Committee advanced the measure Wednesday for debate in the full Legislature.
The bill would make it a misdemeanor to shoot photographs or film body parts that are not generally visible to the public without a person's knowledge and consent. Subsequent violations would be a felony.
Cell phones and small cameras are commonly used for "upskirting." Sen. Amanda McGill of Lincoln, who introduced the bill, says the problem has become more prevalent with changes in technology.
