TV director sentenced for using spy cam on teen nannyPosted: Updated:
A former CNBC director from Pleasantville was sentenced Tuesday to probation after he admitted he used a camera to spy on his nanny.
A judge sentenced Daniel Switzen, 44, to five years' probation. In May, Switzen pleaded guilty to unlawful surveillance.
Officials say Switzen placed a camera inside a tissue box in his bathroom and used it to record his 19-year old nanny and her friends back in November. The camera was eventually discovered by the nanny.
As a condition of his probation, Switzen will have to register as a sex offender. He will be allowed to live with his two children, but the judge said Switzen will not be able to drive his children to school, go to school events or take them to parks, playgrounds and pools.
The judge also issued an order of protection against Switzen, barring him from trying to have any contact with the victims in this case. That order will stay in effect for eight years.
Switzen is due back in court on Nov. 13 for a sex offender registration hearing.
