(Washington Post) A Chevy Chase landlord pleaded guilty Tuesday to hiding tiny video cameras in the rooms of three women amid a prosecutor’s allegations that he used low-priced rents to lure them in as tenants so he could record them having sex.
Dennis Van Dusen, 64, created “a stage to exercise his prurient intent of watching these young women,” prosecutor Stephen Chaikin said in Montgomery County Circuit Court.
Van Dusen pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor charges as part of a deal with prosecutors to drop other counts. He is scheduled to be sentenced in July. Prosecutors will seek no more than 18 months of jail time. State sentencing guidelines suggest a lower sentence — from probation to six months.
