Cookeville Man Charged With Unlawful Photography

It's called unlawful photographing in violation of privacy. The state says it is a crime for a person to knowingly photograph an individual, when the individual is in a place where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy -- specifically if that photograph was taken for the purpose of sexual arousal or gratification of the defendant. A Cookeville man has been cited for that misdemeanor after allegedly following women around the TJ Maxx store and using his cell phone to take pictures up their skirts. Police say 21-year-old Hugo Tomas Ramirez initially denied even having a cell phone, but one was found in his pocket and police say they found inappropriate images on that phone. He goes to court July 12th..
