Donald Torr, an East Hampton landlord who pleaded guilty to unlawfully surveilling his tenants, was sentenced Thursday to five years probation.
According to authorities, Torr, 71, placed seven cameras throughout a Winterberry Lane rental home, including in the bedrooms, bathrooms and hallways. The camera’s were connected to a digital video recorder in the basement, and a router allowed for remote viewing, the Suffolk County district attorney’s office said.
Judge Barbara Kahn sentenced Torr for 14 counts of second-degree unlawful surveillance. He additionally pleaded guilty to nine counts of endangering the welfare of a child, for which he was sentenced to three years probation, to run concurrently.
The sentence fell far short of the district attorney’s office recommendation: two and two-thirds to eight years imprisonment.
