Note: not actually great news.

So this happened:

A seemingly clear cut case of video voyeurism that left a teenager feeling violated after witnesses accused a man of snapping pictures under her dress, is anything but open and shut.

The suspect was arrested but the district attorney didn't pursue charges.

Turns out, Oregon laws are partially to blame. The On Your Side Investigators found there's no statute specifically tailored to video voyeurism. Therefore, prosecutors can have a more difficult time matching alleged crimes with corresponding charges...

Bruce was arrested and booked for disorderly conduct but, according to the Stofiel's, the case was dismissed at arraignment a few days later because the Multnomah County district attorney's office felt the charge did not fit the crime.

I'm sure that the fact that this crime almost exclusively targets women has nothing to do with the fact that it's NOT A FUCKING CRIME IN OREGON GODDAMN IT.

Anyway, I'm sure the Legislature will get to it one of these days. No rush, guys. It's not like this happens all the fucking time or anything.
