When a person knowingly observes or photographs another person's intimate parts without that person's knowledge or consent and the person being viewed or photographed has a reasonable expectation of privacy (such as not in a nudist colony) and the photographing or viewing is done for the observer's sexual gratification, then the crime of invasion of privacy for sexual gratification is charged in Colorado.
The first time a person is charged with invasion of privacy for sexual gratification in Jefferson County, it is a class 1 misdemeanor. However, the misdemeanor is considered an extraordinary risk crime and carries with it up to two years in county jail or serious sex offender probation utilizing the SOMB guidelines.
