Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: Hey LBW, I need a quick answer as I am a prosecutor in the middle of a trial. We need to show that that the defendant's home was closer to one cell tower than to another cell tower. Can we use Google Earth for this?

Answer: No problem! (New Jersey Law Journal, Google Earth Photos Help Show Proximity to Crime Scene in Burglary Case)

2) Question: I'm a cop. We just caught this guy trying to take pictures up women's skirts at the Wal-Mart! Is there some law that covers this?

Answer: Are you in Idaho? If so, consider arresting him under the new "video voyeurism" felony that was "created to meet the needs of an ever-changing technology in society." (KTVB, Man arrested, accused of taking pictures under women's skirts)

Moldbag 3) Question: I hate to waste your time but I can't take it anymore. Somebody at work steals my sandwich everyday! Is there a "petty theft" complaint I can bring or something?

Answer: No need for that. Just use this new "anti-theft lunch bag" with fake mold on it and nobody will ever steal your food again. (Consumerist, Anti-Theft Lunch Bags Make Thieves Think Your Sandwich Is Moldy)
