New York City Police Officer Miguel Gomez is accused of using a surveillance camera to spy on his 21-year-old stepdaughter having sex and getting dressed. It was initially believed that the young woman who Gomez was spying on was a neighbor.
Gomez, 41, reportedly used his camera to record his stepdaughter in the Bronx home that she shared with her mom and him.
Mark Panzavecchia, Gomez’s attorney, said Monday that prosecutors have just a single recording of the victim that was taken in the bathroom and shows no sexual activity. “He denies it all,” Panzavecchia said. “We’re going to take a hard look at the evidence.”
Gomez was arraigned in Bronx Supreme Court Friday on three counts of unlawful surveillance. He has been a member of the NYPD for eight years, reports The Daily News. A judge ordered him not to be in contact with his stepdaughter.
“I’m in total shock,” said a neighbor. “He’s a cop. He was so respectable.”
