FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - A Fort Wayne man accused of using a shoe camera to videotape up women's skirts will not face voyeurism charges.
Police arrested David Delagrange in February at an Indianapolis mall. Friday, the prosecutor dropped all 10 voyeurism charges against him, because Indiana's current voyeurism statute doesn't cover the taking of upskirt pictures or videos in all public places. He still faces four child exploitation charges.
State Senator Tom Wyss immediately became involved and wrote an anti-upskirt bill that would make taking any upskirt pictures anywhere illegal. But his bill wasn't heard this legislative session, because it would've added costs to the state.
Friday, NewsChannel 15 caught up with him again to get his reaction about the Delagrange case and the fact that another man is off the hook.
"Although it's unfortunate it happened down there, the thing about it was it proved that it wasn't just an isolated case," said Wyss. "These are the kind of things that go on. These are the kind of things that need to be addressed."
