2theadvocate.com | News | Photo taker says heâs guilty — Baton Rouge, LA As with the recent post concerning the state of Texas, this has nothing to do with the moral fiber of the "offender." I just find it difficult that someone can be persuaded to plead guilty to taking photographs in a public place. What follows is Louisiana's "Video Voyeurism" law. It was one of the first in the nation (it also inspired a bad Lifetime movie starring Angie Harmon). This is a horribly written law, but being a VERY conservative state like Texas, there is little chance of it being re-written.
