A former Morgan Stanley investment manager accused of secretly videotaping romps with three women claimed the camera was only intended to monitor his pooch. “I have this camera set up in my apartment to watch my dog when I’m not there,” John C. Kelly told investigators on Feb. 26, according to court papers made public Thursday. “It’s on and sometimes stays on. So I accidentally recorded myself having sex because it’s always recording.” ... Daniel Parker, the defense lawyer for one of the victim’s, said Kelly posted the illicit videos on Internet sites. “He used an elaborate system of surveillance using multiple devices in both his bedroom and their homes,” said Parker. “He left a trail and it was on YouTube and Vimeo.” Kelly used a hidden camera, a web cam and a stealth phone app to film the women engaged in various sexual acts. He even installed a hidden camera in the bookshelf of his East 69th Street apartment, Park said. [NYP]
