2017 QCCS 4745

In 2017 QCCS 4745, an 18-year-old man tried to take a photo of another person underneath a bathroom stall. The victim confronted the man, who apologized for attempting to take the photograph. He was charged with voyeurism and received a conditional discharge. On appeal, the sentence was reduced to an absolute discharge on the basis that the accused was young, had no prior record and immediately denounced his actions.
