Legal Question in Criminal Law in South Carolina

Nonconsenting Videotaping

If a videotape was made of a person who was not fully clothed without their consent, what would that person need to do in order to file charges against the ''videotapper''. If the person knows the tape exists, yet does not possess the tape, does that person have a legitimate case.

You would need to contact the local police and file an incident report. They will make a decision on whether or not to issue a warrant.

Re: Nonconsenting Videotaping

Your question is a tad short of information. It would be nice to know the age of the "person," whether someone taped them from inside a house or actually taped them from outside through a window. The relationship of the two involved is also important. The most import question though, is what does "not fully clothed" mean? That could make a big difference. You need to call your local police department or prosecutor and explain your situation. They can tell you what you can or cannot do. They are the ones you would need to deal with eventually if there were ever any charges brought.
