A man who caught his wife cheating on him is being accused of breaking the law in the process.
Sean Donis, 37, suspected his wife Nancy, 38, of having an affair with her boss, Albert Lopez, 58, reports the Daily Mail.
Sean, a florist who owns a shop called A Garden of Flowers, explained his suspicion to the New York Post. "She would hide her phone. I'd touch the phone -- she would get very nervous and say, 'No, don't touch my phone.' She'd go to work looking extra pretty. And she lost a lot of weight also," he said.
On April 15, 2016, when his wife had said she was meeting friends for dinner in Elizabeth, New Jersey, Sean used the "Find My iPhone" app to trace Nancy to Rockland County, New York, where Lopez lives.
So Sean drove to Lopez's house, and when he noticed Nancy's car parked out front, he entered through the unlocked front door.
Moving to the master bedroom, he found his Nancy and her boss having sex, and made two short videos to document the scene.
The first clip, only seven seconds long, begins with Sean exclaiming "Wow!" before dropping his phone as Nancy and her lover disengage.
The next video, 35 seconds long, shows the couple covering up as Sean says, "All on video! All on video! ... I can't believe you, Nancy. I can't believe you."
In response, Nancy pleads: "Stop. Please, stop. Stop. OK, I get it. I get it. Stop."
Then Lopez angrily orders Sean out of the house. "Don't worry, I'm leaving," Sean replies, as the video ends.
Nancy subsequently filed for divorce, and the couple's marriage was dissolved in February, according to court records.
In July, Sean received a letter informing him a Rockland grand jury had indicted him on charges of felony burglary and unlawful surveillance.
According to the New York penal code, it is a felony to photograph or record "the sexual or other intimate parts" of a person in a place where the person has a reasonable expectation of privacy, notes the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.
The following month, Sean pleaded not guilty, and is due back in court on Sept. 20.
"I feel like it's unjust what they're doing to me," he said. "It's like I'm being punished twice."
His attorney, Howard Greenberg, summarized his client's case.
"He commits a trespass that in a sane jurisdiction is a violation and not a crime, and he uncovers the greater evil of his wife screwing some stranger," Greenberg said. "No jury is going to convict this man of anything, let alone a felony."
