Former Ossining maintenance worker sentenced for spying in women’s bathroom


WHITE PLAINS –A former Ossining town employee has been sentenced on his guilty plea to unlawful surveillance as a felony.

Lider Velez, 49, of Peekskill, was arrested on June 21, 2017 after another worker had found a hidden camera in the public restroom at Ossining Village Hall, said Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr.

Police allege the camera was placed there by Velez, a member of the maintenance staff, capturing women on camera as they used the facilities.

Velez was sentenced to five months shock probation with sex offender conditions and will have to register as a sex offender when released.
