Regina v Bassett – Times Law Reports

Regina v Bassett

Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)

“The reference to ‘breasts’ in section 68(1)(a) of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, defining voyeurism, did not include male breasts.”

R v Bassett – WLR Daily

R v Bassett; [2008] WLR (D) 157

For an offence of voyeurism to be committed, within the definition in s 67 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, there had to be a private act which involved parts of the body for which people would normally expect privacy, as defined by s 68(1). Casual observation by other changing room users created no offence of voyeurism, even if those persons gained sexual gratification from what they saw. Although those using the showers at a public swimming pool had a reasonable expectation of privacy from covert filming, there was no reasonable expectation that a man should enjoy privacy of his upper torso, since “breasts” in the Act referred to female breasts and not the exposed male chest.”
