A long-time director for CNBC is the latest NBC Universal employee to be accused of a major sex scandal, this time involving spying on teens.
The New York Daily News reported on Wednesday that Dan Switzen, who directed “The Suze Orman Show” for over a decade and “Power Lunch”, was caught hiding a camera in a bathroom tissue box to peep on his 18-year-old live-in nanny and her friends.
The felony crime occurred on Nov. 13, when Switzen’s teen nanny invited two other 18-year-old friends to his New York home. One of her friends discovered a camera in the bathroom tissue box and the horrified teens immediately took the camera to police.
Law enforcement found incriminating images on the camera’s memory card and obtained a search warrant. Switzen was then arrested on a count of unlawful surveillance, which is a felony.
The complaint, which was filed in Pleasantville Village Court in New York, states per NY Daily News:
“He intentionally installed a video recording device in a tissue box located in his family’s bathroom to surreptitiously view a person dressing or undressing…at a place and time when (the victim) had a reasonable expectation of privacy without (her) knowledge or consent.”
Switzen was released without bail.
