In the recent past we’ve had a couple of video surveillance cases that have made the news. There was the case out of Waterloo involving an office bathroom, the Storm Lake news story, the packing house case having to do with allegations of animal abuse (and don’t forget the lawmakers’ reaction) and now this one out of Ames, Iowa.

Man Pleads Guilty in Duplex Spy Camera Case

Clients often ask what they can legally do when wanting to videotape someone without their knowledge. People want to catch others ‘in the act’ for various reasons, but this video surveillance by hidden camera is serious business that shouldn’t be undertaken without a lot of thought. In this Ames case the police allegedly charged the man with a class D felony. So before you don’t say “Action!”, see a lawyer.
