    Default Privacy Violations. Are They Law Violations

    Hi,

    I reside in Florida, USA.

    Until recently, I was the lead computer technician for a small local computer shop in northeast Florida.

    I say "until recently" because I quit after the following incident came to light.

    The owner of the shop had taken a ladies computer in to do a whack of the HD and a re-install of the Operating System. A couple days later, the owner bragged to me that he had found some adult pictures of the customer on her computer. He described them as full nude and topless pictures. Worse, the owner shared those pictures with ANOTHER customer who was present when the owner was bragging to me about it.

    Of course, this is a violation of the customer's privacy, a violation of public trust and grossly unprofessional.

    My question is, though, is it illegal? I have contact with the customer and want to advise her if she can file a criminal complaint.

    Thanx

    She can do whatever she wants. If she wants to file a police report, she may do so and the police will review the facts to see if a crime was committed.

    Yes, I realize she can.

    But I don't want to advise her to do that unless there HAS been a crime committed.

    Hence, my question to the forum. Is such an invasion of privacy a crime?

    Thanx for the response.

    Why are you advising her about anything? It's no longer your concern.

    You can review Florida's criminal statutes here, and see if you can find anything that may apply.

    Simple. It's the right thing to do.

    Thanx, I'll check that out.
