Las Vegas, NV asked in Civil Rights, Constitutional Law and Criminal Law for Nevada

Q: What if someone put a hidden camera in my house and I don't know where it is?

What would happen if there are spy cams unknown to the owners in their homes? I’m suspecting that there are hidden cameras in my home. People seem to know what I've been up to in my home without telling anyone and I'm told that there are hidden cameras in my house. Is there a law that could protect me? What actions should I take?

A: I'm sorry for your ordeal. This is something a Nevada attorney could advise best on, but your question remains open for four weeks. You could look into the cost of investigators. To save money, you might be able to conduct some of your own investigations on the property. If you find that surveillance is unlawfully being conducted on you, you could see if a Nevada attorney would offer a free or brief, limited consult to determine if it is something that would be viable and cost-effective to go after. Good luck
