State v. Mann, 237 N.C. App. 535 (Dec. 2, 2014)

An indictment charging felony peeping was not defective. Rejecting the defendant’s argument that the indictment was defective because it failed to allege that the defendant’s conduct was done without the victim’s consent, the court concluded that “any charge brought under N.C.G.S. § 14-202 denotes an act by which the defendant has spied upon another without that person’s consent.” Moreover, the charging language, which included the word “surreptitiously” gave the defendant adequate notice. Further, the element of “without consent” is adequately alleged in an indictment that indicates the defendant committed an act unlawfully, willfully, and feloniously.
