East Hampton Landlord Accused of Spying on Residents
An East Hampton landlord has been indicted on charges of secretly filming his tenants with cameras hidden throughout the house.
Donald Torr pleaded not guilty Wednesday at Suffolk County court to charges of unlawful surveillance and endangering the welfare of a child.
Prosecutors said the 69-year-old suspect taped 13 adults and nine children in the home without their knowledge, according to NBC News.
Torr’s attorney, Bruce Barket, told reporters that the cameras were there to ensure the house wasn’t vandalized when it was vacant, not spy on residents.
One of the victims’ families has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Torr as well.
Bail for Torr was set at $100,000 cash or $300,000 bond. He is due back in court July 11.
