Upskirting is an issue affecting the Internet for a couple of reasons. First, because upskirting – the act of surreptitiously taking a photo up someone’s skirt – is usually done with a cell phone, part of the sport is posting the upskirt pictures you take to the Internet. Also “upskirting” is one of the most often-searched for phrase on the Internet. You might say that upskirting and the Internet go hand-in-hand.

In the past we have pondered what sort of person would be the type to defend someone on trial for upskirting.


But a new case takes the defense of upskirters to new lows. In this case, the defense argues that a woman – who was upskirted while shopping at Walmart – legally had no right to an expectation of privacy because she was shopping in an aisle at Walmart.

According to William Price III, the lawyer for Keith Wilson, who is charged with upskirting the woman in Walmart, the woman should not lawfully have an expectation of privacy while out and about, shopping in public in a store. Says Price, “Privacy rights do not extend beyond restrooms and fitting rooms.”

Personally, I think they jolly well extend to under someone’s own skirt!

Wilson, for his part, at least appears to be contrite, telling police, “I realize it was wrong. I knew right away it was wrong. I was told about and (shown) pictures called ‘upskirt.’ I know I made a very bad decision.”

His lawyer, on the other hand, thinks that he was well within his rights. Let’s hope that he’s wrong.

  1. “Aunty”
    You’re completely correct! While I enjoy looking at a pretty woman what she’s got under her skirt is her private business, and that privacy should be respected, and will be by anyone who wants to be considered a gentleman, and yes, in my opinion the lawyer is wrong. Anyone I catch “upskirting” my wife, daughter or grand daughter will be decked on the spot.
