A former television director has pleaded guilty to spying on his teenage nanny in his Westchester home.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. announced on Tuesday that Daniel Switzen, who worked at CNBC and who was arrested in November, has pleaded guilty to a felony count of second-degree unlawful surveillance for the incident.

Switzen pleaded guilty to placing a secret camera inside a tissue box in the bathroom of his Pleasantville home on Nov. 13 last year. The camera was discovered by the teenage victim, Scarpino said. Switzen admitted to placing the camera to capture images of the nanny and her friend, Scarpino said.

Switzen is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 21, when he will face a term of one and a half years to four years in state prison. Upon his release, Switzen will also be required to register as a sex offender.
