A sex offender was sentenced Wednesday to 1 ½ to 3 years in prison for secretly videotaping young women changing at a swimsuit show in Southampton last summer.

Robert Liguori had pleaded guilty in March before Judge Barbara Kahn at Suffolk County court to unlawful surveillance.

The 52-year-old had been hired as a freelance photographer to shoot the “Hamptons Wine & Dine” event when placed a live video camera in a makeshift dressing room used by the models on July 12, 2012.

“We were fortunate the sponsor of the event seized the camera and turned the recording over to police and the footage did not end up on the Internet,” District Attorney Tom Spota said.

Liguori is registered as a Level 2 Sex Offender for a conviction in 2000 on federal child porn charges.

His sex offender designation may be upgraded from level two to a level three status, prosecutors said.
