NORTH ATTLEBORO, MA – There’s no skirting the law this time! A legal loop-hole in Massachusetts that enabled a man to get away with secretly taking an indecent picture of a woman earlier this month, has finally closed.

A Rhode Island man was arrested in the baked bean state for taking “upskirt” pics of a woman, and he’s believed to be the first charged under a “new” law that makes this lewd act illegal. Massachusetts recently realized the problem but folks on the street were never confused about the upskirt issue.

The pathetic photographer is 37-year-old Sheldon Fulbeck. He’s accused of talking a photo of an unknowing woman in a Target dressing room. The woman saw his cell phone camera under the stall door, and quickly alerted her boyfriend, who then tackled Fulbeck.

Comically, in a last ditch effort to clear his name, Fulbeck pulled the memory card out of his camera phone, put it in his month and started chewing it to destroy the evidence. If Massachusetts convicts Fulbeck he can face up to 2 and a half years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

In Texas, it’s illegal for a person to photograph or record a non-consenting person, with the purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire. So down here, we always knew how to act like gentlemen. Looks like that’s something the North just figured out!
