Phew, Massachusetts Will Make Upskirting Illegal After All

After this week's head-scratching Massachusetts Supreme Court ruling that said the state's Peeping Tom laws didn't make it illegal to take creepshots in public places, the state's lawmakers hurriedly approved new legislation banning the act. The AP states the new law penalizes anyone who "photographs, videotapes or electronically surveils" another person's sexual or intimate parts without that person's consent, carrying a 2.5 year, $5,000 penalty; double if the victim is under 18 years old. The bill will reach Gov. Deval Patrick today, and he's vowed to sign it. Finally, some sense. [AP]
