Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo announced the arrest of Petro “Peter” Barbounis, 46, of Norwood, on charges of Invasion Of Privacy.

According to authorities, on June 29th, members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit executed a court-authorized search warrant at the residence of Barbounis during an invasion of privacy investigation. The investigation revealed that Barbounis used a camera to record two victims depicting them nude and/or sexually explicit without their knowledge or consent.

As a result of the investigation, police arrested and charged Barbounis on June 29th with two counts of Invasion Of Privacy.

Officials say Barbounis is scheduled for a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on July 18th, at 9 a.m.

Acting Prosecutor Calo states that the charges are merely an accusation and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
