Man accused of ‘upskirting’ woman at Dollar General

October 12, 2018

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — Police in Mississippi say a man recorded a video underneath a woman’s dress as she shopped at a Dollar General in Biloxi.

The Sun Herald reported Thursday that Frankie Denor McClendon Jr. has been arrested and charged with photographing for lewd purposes. The practice is known as “upskirting.”

Biloxi police say the woman called officers, who then found McClendon outside and got permission to search his phone. Police Maj. Christopher De Back says in a release that officers then found a video of the woman from underneath her dress.

The penalty in Mississippi for taking lewd pictures is up to five years in prison if the victim is over 16 years old. It’s unclear if McClendon has a lawyer.
