An Ingleside man who set up a hidden video recorder in his girlfriend’s bedroom in an attempt to catch her cheating has been sentenced to 86 days in jail.
Kevin N. Labrizzi, 28, of the 26300 block of West Blackhawk Avenue in Ingleside, was indicted on four counts of unauthorized video recording, a Class 3 felony, and four counts of unauthorized video recording, a Class 4 felony.
Labrizzi was arrested on April 16, 2019, after the Lake County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a domestic dispute at a residence in the 26300 block of West Blackhawk Avenue in Ingleside.
Lake County Sheriff Spokesman Lt. Christopher Covelli said that the dispute involved Labrizzi and his 26-year-old girlfriend, who lived at the same address.
An investigation showed that Labrizzi set up a video recording device in his girlfriend’s bedroom and recorded her while she was changing and at various times she was nude, Covelli said.
Labrizzi saved these videos to his own electronic devices, Covelli said, adding that his girlfriend did not consent to the recordings and did not know she was being recorded.
Detectives interviewed the man and he admitted he installed the recording device because he was attempting to catch his girlfriend cheating on him.
Sheriff’s detectives confirmed Labrizzi was in possession of the videos of the victim, and he was arrested and charged.
Labrizzi accepted a plea deal from the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office and pleaded guilty to one count of unauthorized video recording.
Court records show the man was sentenced to 18 months of probation and 50 hours of public service along with several other sentencing conditions.
However, Labrizzi violated his sentence and had his probation revoked on Wednesday, court records said.
A judge sentenced him to 82 days of periodic imprisonment in the Lake County Jail and 82 days of special probation conditions.
