As a Houston lawyer since 1996, I’ve represented a number of people accused of Improper Photography or Visual Recording. Some of these people should have never been charged with a crime, while others were criminally charged due to a lack of responsibility or “poor decision making.”
The legal standard for a guilty adjudgement in a criminal case for Improper Photography requires the prosecutors to prove that the recording was motivated by sexual satisfaction, making it a sex-crime.
This is where having the right Houston attorney on your side can make all the difference.

Another standard for the application of the charge is to have captured said imagery without the other person’s permission, and/or for the purpose of sexual stimulus or to invade another person’s privacy.
