RIVERHEAD - A convicted sex offender accused of secretly videotaping swimsuit models was slapped with new charges today in a Riverhead courtroom. Prosecutors say Robert Liguori secretly recorded models in their dressing room after being hired to photograph a Hamptons fashion show. An indictment was unsealed today, charging the 51-year-old with three additional counts of unlawful surveillance. Assistant District Attorney Al Croce says the models, who are between the ages of 20 and 30, found the camera in the dressing room, removed the media card and handed it over to police. Croce says Liguori actually recorded himself setting up the hidden camera. Liguori has been behind bars since his arrest in September. Prosecutors say he's also a level 2 sex offender who was convicted of disseminating child porn back in 2000. Police executed a search warrant in September at Liguori's Mastic Beach home, where they seized a computer hard drive and video tapes. Prosecutors say Liguori has been working under the name Leonardo Liguori. Authorities ask anyone who feels they may have been victimized by Liguori to call Southampton police.
