The incident occurred back in July on a cruise ship from Bayonne to Bermuda and now, Jeffery Goldstein, 31, is being charged with one count of violating voyeurism statute that prohibits photographing minors’ private areas without consent. Goldstein now faces the maximum potential penalty — one year in prison and a hefty $100,000 fine according to prosecutors.

    The 13-year-old testified she felt something brush her leg at the time before noticing Goldstein walk away.
