A West Harrison man accused of secretly filming his family while they used the bathroom and saving the videos on his computer is now serving probation. 
Andrew Amodeo pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful surveillance in March. 
He’s accused of secretly filming his sister-in-law and other family members, including underage children, in the bathroom of the family’s vacation home near Cooperstown in 2018. 
Amodeo allegedly used a motion-activated recording device disguised to look like a phone charger to record the victims. 
Otsego County prosecutors say the videos were found by a family member on his computer in Westchester and turned over to police. 
Amodeo was originally charged with eight felony counts. 
Prosecutors say a pretrial ruling determined that his police confession could not be used because Amodeo wasn’t read his Miranda rights when he asked for an attorney.  
He was given a plea deal as a result and is serving probation until sentencing March 13, 2023. 
Authorities say the judge will then consider a range of sentences from prison time, continued probation or a conditional discharge.
