The Colorado Springs, Colo. landlord caught on video using his tenants' home as a gay hookup spot was sentenced to two years in prison Friday, CBS Denver reports.
Carlos Quijada-Lara, 40, was arrested last December on criminal trespassing charges and misdemeanor obscenity and pleaded not guilty to the charges in August.
After tenants Logan Pierce and his wife Mikaela DiGiulio grew suspicious someone was in their home while they were out, the couple set up a home security camera. The video was triggered to activate last November when Quijada-Lara entered the room with another man. Once the camera was turned on, it sent a notification to Pierce's phone. He then checked the live feed and saw the landlord having sex with the man on his bed.
"It detected noise and was strange because both of us work all day everyday," Pierce told CBS affiliate KKTV. "I opened up the camera and kind of had to, like, quit the program and, like, restart it again because I didn't really believe what I saw."
He then called DiGiulio and they called the police.
"Obviously landlords don't have the ability to go into tenant apartments and do whatever they want to do," Colorado Springs Police Department's Lt. Howard Black said.
"It was like a total violation of privacy," Pierce told the news station. "Just to have somebody to come in unannounced is enough, but then go forth with sleeping with somebody on your bed while you're not there. It was scary."
Pierce said the worst part of the incident was that Quijada-Lara apparently used his wife's wedding dress as a towel to clean himself off.
The couple, who paid $1,100 in rent, married in March 2016 and have since moved out of the apartment.
