Norristown, Pa. - A Philadelphia-area landlord who admitted he used hidden cameras to spy on 34 female tenants is heading to prison.
A Montgomery County Court judge sentenced 47-year-old Thomas Daley to four to 10 years behind bars Friday. Daley pleaded guilty last year to hiding cameras behind mirrors or in ceiling fans to spy on tenants.
Prosecutors say Daley taped the women or watched them live on his computer. They say it began in 1989 and continued until September 2008 at five apartment buildings he owned in Norristown.
A weeping Daley told the court at his sentencing that he knew what he did was wrong. Daley pleaded guilty to charges including invasion of privacy in June.
