Suspect in Dressing Room Cam Case to Be Arraigned Friday

Authorities say registered sex offender Robert Liguori placed a video camera in a changing area for models — and he also faces charges of exposing himself and stalking.

A level-two sex offender accused of placing a video camera in a dressing room during a swimsuit fashion show in Southampton is scheduled to answer a felony indictment on Friday.

Police said that on July 12 Robert Liguori, of 2 Whittier Dr. in Mastic Beach, entered the female models' changing area, positioned the camera on a shelf and left. But before he could retrieve it, an intern discovered the camera, and the fashion designer behind the show, Lu Berry, removed it, according to authorities.


Southampton Village police arrested Liguori at his home on Sept. 18 and executed a search warrant, seizing videos and photos. He was initially ordered held in lieu of $32,000 bail, but on Thursday a Suffolk County Criminal Court judge remanded him to the county jail in Riverside without bail.

Liguori was originally expected to be indicted Thursday, but the case was delayed one day. According to online court records, Liguori could be facing five counts of unlawful surveillance in the second degree, a felony.

He was also recently arrested in an unrelated case in Center Moriches, in which Suffolk police said he exposed himself to a woman working at a clothing store. According to the arrest report, he returned to the store two more times that day, Sept. 7, "placing the victim in fear of the commission of a sex offense against her ..."  He was charged with stalking in the third degree, a misdemeanor, and is due in Suffolk County First District Court in Central Islip on Nov. 8.

Suffolk District Attorney Thomas Spota said Liguori became a registered sex offender after the U.S. Customs Service arrested him in 1998 for trafficking in child pornography, transmitting child pornography, and transporting child pornography interstate.

Southampton Village police said further charges could be forthcoming against Liguori, after detectives finish browsing photographs and other materials collected from his home.

Hasn't everyone concluded from Christie's postings that she is an immature and very likely under aged individual? Her intelligence and writings do not rise to the level of a person beyond age 12. She is an attention seeker. Let this be the last we write about her. She's as crazy as this camera nutter and just as dangerous. I'm sure Christie is laughing at us all.

It is a nasty joke from some wicked creep from Patch! ....Look, for the last time as I originally posted: regarding this pervert photographer: I was only saying that what he did was nowhere as Evil COMPARED to as a child molester or rapist ! Folks should wait to find out the facts before crucifying this man! He did not even touch these adult women...Learn to Read people!

Seems there are strange things going on here at the Patch. That's too bad someone is using your name Christie, I hope this gets cleared up.
Charlie Cheswick September 30, 2012 at 02:34 AM

I couldn't agree with you more.
Jaguar-Guy September 30, 2012 at 11:38 AM
Everyone is missing the point that she is supposed to be a "woman" who is NOT outraged at this obvious criminal pervert. No - Not ok Christie. Again, you were not taught right from wrong and there is NO way your father is/was a Judge (maybe Huckleberry Pie Judge).
christie nicolle September 30, 2012 at 05:19 PM
Brendan O'Reilly, just got your message that you ALERTED everyone that someone is using my name + posting....Thanks....Here online there are not only IMPOSTERS using my name but they also use multiple names It's called Poster Fraud! Learned a lesson here: I should never give out my private email -- there's an epidemic of perverted men harassing women!
christie nicolle September 30, 2012 at 05:33 PM
Jag-Guy you are so naive...calm down + READ my lips (words): I DID NOT WRITE THE STUPID POSTS -- an IMPOSTER USING MY NAME is! Just like there are posters using different names...I'm certain it's Stinker, a mental patient who insults the Jews for how they spell God, remember that article?
Brendan J. O'Reilly (Editor) September 30, 2012 at 06:07 PM
John Gruber October 02, 2012 at 04:07 PM
first off, by his own admission he's jewish himself, secondly he didn't insult them he said it was ridiculous they didn't spell "god" just to be PC. and you're still the person who said rape and murder should only happen to the president and seem to be ok with men spying on women's dressing rooms. don't try to make people look worse than you
christie nicolle October 02, 2012 at 05:23 PM
Brendan O'Reillly you are the BEST! We women are sick of the epidemic of perverts, either in person or online who harass us... Notice on this forum, cowards posting their obnoxious, garabage to strangers... proving they simply don't have Real Human Relations! Sick iPad addicts.
Mary Beth October 02, 2012 at 05:30 PM
The fake christie nicolle did not say anything worse that then real christie nicolle
Stinker October 02, 2012 at 05:40 PM
I am having trouble breaking through....not enough power captain....book burning? you betcha.
Robert Liquori October 03, 2012 at 10:13 AM
These are your kind words of support and are archived under your very user file, why are you now trying to distance yourself from the valiant and brave support you provided to me? " don't see what he did was anywhere near what you call horrific -- don't frat boys in college do this? Be angry at the pedophiles who molest children -- he was only looking at pretty women -- never touched them..."
christie nicolle October 03, 2012 at 02:27 PM
Now the stench Stinker is using Robert Liquori's name... look, i did not read the entire article about this sicko...the original article did NOT mention he was a child molester...being that's what I read now, this criminal needs to be put away fast! But drag Stinker along with Liquori too... anyone who harasses someone online + uses multiple identities is a sick pervert.
John Gruber October 03, 2012 at 04:31 PM
Christie, why it so hard to understand that the majority of people don't agree with your twisted and ignorant view of the world?
Charlie Cheswick October 03, 2012 at 05:37 PM
Hey christie, are you dressing up as a black kettle for Halloween? "Posting obnoxious garbage to strangers" is your forte.
christie nicolle October 03, 2012 at 05:57 PM
J.Gruber i guess it rattles you seeing how similar you + your ilk may be to this low life?? I can help you...Stop staring at your iPad, computer, etc, + go face a live human being + do something of purity for them...
