RIVERHEAD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A convicted sex offender who admitted to recording young women surreptitiously at a Long Island fashion show has been sentenced to as many as three years in prison.

Robert Liguori was sentenced to a term of one and a half to three years Wednesday in a Suffolk County courtroom. He previously pleaded guilty to unlawful surveillance.

The incident happened last July at a fashion show in Southampton.

Liguori, 52, had been hired as a freelance photographer at the event.

He admitted placing a video camera in a makeshift dressing room used by female swimsuit models. He recorded four women disrobing, police said.

One of the victims spotted the camera and reported it to authorities, sparking an investigation, police said.

In 2000, Liguori was convicted of disseminating indecent materials to a minor after being arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to the New York State Sex Offender Registry. He was released from prison on that conviction in 2007.

Liguori was also arrested on a stalking charge two weeks before being charged in the fashion show case, police said.
