In what would have been a case of a perfect detective job, a New Jersey man faces the possibility of a 15-year jail term.
A case of felony has been filed against Sean Donis, 37, who caught his wife Nancy Donis, 38, in bed with her boss, Albert Lopez, 58, using an iPhone tracker.
It started in 2016, Nancy had told her husband Sean that she was going to dinner, leaving their five-year-old son behind for him to watch.
Sean suddenly started looking for his iPad and turned on the Find My iPhone app to locate it.
He said the software showed the iPad moving toward an unknown location, and he began to suspect that his wife had the device. His curiosity led him on till he arrived at a house and opened the unlocked door.
Sean found his wife in bed with her boss on the second floor and without wasting time, he recorded two brief incidences of the pair in bed.
For catching his wife red-handed in bed with her boss, the father of one got a letter in July, 2017, informing him that he had been charged with felony burglary and unlawful surveillance for the April 2016 incident.
Sean told the New York Post in September that he feels “like it’s unjust what they’re doing to me.”
After having gone through the trauma of seeing his wife cheat on him, he said: “It’s like I’m being punished twice.”
He, however, appeared in court in September, where he pleaded not guilty.
But it didn’t end there, Sean made a second appearance on Friday.
“I was in fear,” Lopez testified of the moment when Sean caught him in bed with his wife.
“I kept telling him, you need to get out of here,” Lopez told the jury on Sean’s felony case.
According to Lopez, the incident left him traumatized. He said, “I couldn’t go to sleep. I had repeated memories of what occurred. I started to go through the house and check all the doors and make sure they were locked.”
Lopez stated that Sean’s wife told him that they were separated and he thought she didn’t have a man in her life.
Sean’s lawyer, Howard Greenberg, told the jurors that the husband actually, “deserves a medal” not a prison sentence for uncovering his wife’s unfaithfulness.
Despite his statement and the fact that Lopez slept with his wife, the prosecutor Nabeela Mcleod insisted that Lopez is a victim.
According to Mcleod, he broke into Lopez’s home and recorded him and his wife without their consent.
With this, Sean faces a possible maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.
