Mass. Man Defends Snapping ‘Upskirt’ Photos As Constitutionally Protected
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Massachusetts man arrested for taking “upskirt” cellphone photos of women on subways has argued in court that it’s perfectly legal and Constitutionally protected.
Michael Robertson, 31, was arrested in 2010 after trying to take photos up women’s dresses on the Boston subway.
He’s now defending what he says is his right to take upskirt pictures of women in public.
Robertson’s defense attorney, a woman, argued before the state Supreme Court on Monday that her client’s actions are protected under the First Amendment.
