A Hole in Peeper Law


In September, landlord Elwyn Gene Miller, 64, went on trial in Iowa City, Iowa, for spying on tenants in the small apartment building he owns — after apparently having constructed peepholes allowing him views into bathrooms and other areas, and having been spotted climbing from a crawl space after accessing one peephole. Nonetheless, as Miller's lawyer pointed out, the law applies only to peeping for "sexual gratification," and there is no "first-hand knowledge or observation" that Miller was "aroused" at the time he was spotted. (At press time, the judge was mulling a decision.)
