Husband Caught Cheating via Google Street View, Lawyer says

Google Street View

Since its inception, Google Street View, which gives viewers a 360-degree, street-level view of certain desired locations, has provided numerous, disturbing images of people caught in the middle of illegal and illicit activities. According to The Sun, an English woman recently learned of her husband's infidelity while using the Google application, noticing his Range Rover (identifiable thanks to its custom rims) parked outside of a female friend's house.

While the image has not been identified to the public, and neither spouse has commented, attorney Mark Stephens confirmed the story to The Sun. He also said that the phenomenon is not uncommon: "I was talking about the Range Rover case when another divorce lawyer came up to say his firm was dealing with the same sort of thing." Such tales are not surprising, considering the rising number of public complaints that the service is an invasion of privacy. Google, for its part, does blur faces in the images of some locales, but that comes as no relief to people, like the Range Rover owner, who are caught in the act by different measures.

As Street View becomes a global Neighborhood Watch, people must take care to protect their privacy, especially if they're doing something which might be shameful or embarrassing.
