Yeah, make it a good lawyer. I imagine one of the gents here would be quite capable. And go a jury trial. Might never end up acquitted but you would never be convicted.

As far a the jury set up, would you want more men or women in the box? Women thinking that could have been me or men thinking that could be my wife/gf/so?

Either way, as long as the guy lives I think you would be in good shape.

In Georgia it is well known that, although not found in O.C.G.A. statutory law,
"That son of a bitch needed shootin'" is a valid defense.

Juries can and have acquitted defendants on that basis-- the offensive behavior of the victim.

If it works for murder and Agg. Assault, it ought to work for a simple asswhoopin.

But seriously, this particular law on invasion of privacy, the criminal variety of that act, is poorly written .
The legislature needs to turn this over to competent lawyers and or prosecutors to rewrite the law in a way that it reaches exactly the conduct it we envision, without going any further to include inoffensive conduct or protected First Amendment activity .

I mean, I don't see how the woman is not a victim here, she did not agree to have pictures snapped of her private parts or some panties, some of these panties don't leave anything to the imagination either

That's pornography as far as I'm concerned, and she did not agree, so that should be a crime and she is a victim.

Plus, in Georgia, you might get off on the "he needed an ass whopping" defense, because, well, he did.

I would feel completely different about this if he was only filming her face. The private parts is a completely different thing. That should at least be considered sexual harassment or something.

If this was my wife or daughter, I'd be so freaking ticked off if a man did this to them.

Some of the Not Northern part of Virginia were similar not too many years back. One defense attorney and prosecutor up here (in the past and more rural areas) looked at every murder initially on the idea of 'how bad did he need killing?' before going further. Similar with the Sheriff.

Some asswhoopins are bigger than other asswhoopins, ya know? :cheers:

Already in motion per the video. Some things are just so egregious it would be stupid to hesitate.
