Bill to put voyeurs on registry ready for governor


MADISON (AP) -- Video voyeurs might soon find themselves listed as sex offenders.

It's currently a felony in Wisconsin to make a video recording of a nude person if the person has a reasonable expectation of privacy or is recorded in a locker room.

The state Assembly passed a measure in January that would enable judges to order voyeurs to join the state's sex offender registry. The Senate passed the bill last month as well, but amended the measure to require judges to order juvenile voyeurs off the registry when they complete their dispositions.

On Tuesday senators withdrew the amendment, clearing the way for Gov. Jim Doyle to sign the bill into law or veto it. Doyle spokesman Adam Collins says the governor will review the bill when he receives it.
