A D.C. man today pleaded guilty to six counts of voyeurism and five counts of stalking after admitting he secretly recorded women “in various
stages of undress” through their apartment windows between 2012 and 2014.
Former U.S. State Department official Daniel Rosen, 45, said he used his cell phone to secretly record women in Mount Pleasant, the U Street Corridor and Adams Morgan.
“Daniel Rosen crept through alleys and peered through windows to secretly film women during intimate, private moments in their own homes,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Vincent Cohen, Jr. today in a press release. “Today he admitted to being a serial stalker and voyeur who robbed women of the privacy they expected in their own bedrooms and bathrooms.”
Rosen often spied on women under the guise of walking his dog, reads the press release, and sometimes returned later to record the same woman again.
Rosen will be sentenced on Oct. 9. Each of the counts of voyeurism and stalking carries a maximum penalty of one year and potential fines.
