Charges dropped in upskirt case

Posted: Updated:
HAVERHILL, Mass. (WHDH) -

There are new details about the case of a man accused of taking a picture under a young girl's skirt in Haverhill last year.

Officials said charges have been dropped against the 38-year-old man.

The state court ruled last week, that taking photos under a woman's skirt wasn't a crime.

The District Attorney's Office said, the man cannot be charged with that crime because at the time, it wasn't against the law.

A law has since been passed making "upskirting" photos illegal in the bay state.
