Better put up a POSTED-NO TRESPASSING SIGN on your property-or a camera can snoop on you

15 February 2009 at 2:35:26 PM

I couldn't believe when I read this case of a man who was caught on camera killing a couple of red hawks, which are protected species. I do not here address whether he should have done this or not, but that the game warden came onto his property and put a hidden camera onto a tree.

An agent testified that the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries regularly uses surveillance cameras when investigating suspicious activity.

"With only five special agents in the Commonwealth of Virginia, it was extremely impractical to conduct live surveillance," Sterling wrote.

VanKesteren fought the case, initially on his own. He argued before a U.S. magistrate judge in Norfolk that the game wardens violated his constitutional rights against unlawful searches by entering his private property and videotaping his activities.

He wondered what would have happened if he 'd been caught on tape urinating near his field. Would he be charged with indecent exposure? What if he were having a romantic interlude in his fields?

Somebody had told me this a while back about the posted sign, that people can walk across your property in Texas, for example, if you haven't explicitly put up a sign that says POSTED NO TRESPASSING. I haven't looked it up, but the case above reminds me that I'd like to do so.
