A former television director is scheduled to appear in court this week to allow a judge to determine his “risk” of sexually offending after pleading guilty to spying on his teenage nanny in his Northern Westchester home.
Daniel Switzen, who worked at CNBC and has a home in Pleasantville, is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday for his SORA hearing, after being sentenced to five years of sex offender probation earlier this year. The judge will determine what level of a sex offender Switzen will have to register as.
Switzen had faced a term of between one and a half years to four years in state prison after pleading guilty to a felony count of second-degree unlawful surveillance following his arrest last November. Instead, he received probation, and is scheduled to have a Sex Offender Registration Act hearing on Nov. 13.
Switzen pleaded guilty to placing a secret camera inside a tissue box in the bathroom of his Pleasantville home on Nov. 13 last year. The camera was discovered by the teenage victim, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. said when announcing his guilty plea. Switzen admitted to placing the camera to capture images of the nanny and her friend.
