Q: Is it illegal to take pictures of someone's house in ormond beach florida?
I am in California. The house is in Ormond Beach Florida. The house belongs to a vile, mentally unstable woman that has bullied me and others online for almost a year. A friend in Florida offered to go by her house and take pictures. He ended up confessing to her that he took the pictures. I did not take the pictures. I've never been to Florida. I never used the pictures against her. This woman is now saying it's a crime to do that to a disabled person (mental illness) and that she is coming after me legally.
A: Generally speaking the taking of photographs of real property is not a crime. However you’re choice of words about the resident would give one reason to question your acts and motive. One last observation, you should be very careful about what you choose to put on the internet…all you have done is give ammunition to the lady whose house your friend photographed. You have the right to remain silent, I would urge you to take advantage of that right. It sounds ominously close to a form of harassment for her alleged actions against you. Good luck and you should hire a good lawyer because I have a strange feeling that you have not heard the last of this woman.
One last observation, you moved to California (why are you still obsessed with this lady?) GET OVER IT!!!
