It's like that Sharon Stone film....

A woman had a rude awakening when she discovered a hidden camera in her room. Since reporting the incident it has been revealed that a suburban Philadelphia landlord secretly videotaped 34 female tenants over two decades after hiding cameras in their apartments.

Thomas Daley, 45, was arraigned on more than 2,000 charges (holy mother of gawd that's a lotta charges) by Magisterial District Judge Francis Lawrence Jr. and waived his preliminary hearing Friday.
Daley had installed the cameras – typically one in the bedroom and one in the bathroom – in at least 7 apartments he rented to women in Norristown over the last 19 years, Reynolds said.
Daley's sophisticated set-up fed the camera images to a recording system in the basement, enabling him to view the tapes from his home via the Internet, authorities have said.
He hid the tiny cameras behind mirrors and in cabinets and ceiling fans, and some turned on with the flip of a light switch, they said.

The investigation began after a tenant discovered a camera this year and contacted police, leading to Daley's arrest Sept. 19 on charges including wiretapping and invasion of privacy. Detectives have since searched his other apartments and recovered videotapes, records and evidence that led to new charges Friday involving 34 current and former tenants.
I like the extra charges: two counts each of burglary and evidence tampering, based on his alleged attempt to break into two apartments and remove cameras after he learned of the probe. Yes, I can't get the image of the little pervert panicking after realising his own personal BIG BROTHER show was coming to an end.

I think a suitable punishment would be: A never ending interview with the talentless she-troll Davina (can you believe they gave her a talk show?) McColl. I reckon after 30 uncomfortable minutes any human being would try to top themselves.
