Husband Faces Jail After Using App To Catch Wife Cheating
An American man is facing jail after using app Find My iPhone to catch his wife cheating , a New Jersey court has heard.
Sean Donis, a florist, is now facing up 15 years for illegally spying on his wife, Nancy and her lover and employer, Albert Lopez. He is also charged with burglary for breaking into Lopez's home, reports the New York Post.
Donis burst in on Lopez and his wife having sex and filmed two short videos of the pair in action.
He had uncovered the scene after tracing his wife's iPad, which was attached to the Find My iPhone app.
She had previously told him that she was attending a dinner with friends in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and had asked Sean Donis to take care of their 5-year-old while she was away, only to instead visit Lopez at his home in Rockland County, New York.
He then followed the signal to Lopez's house and entered the property, whereupon he discovered the liaison.
Donis had long suspected that his wife was having an affair with Lopez, CEO of Gotham City Orthopedics, for whom she was a billing manager.
Lopez can be heard in the video shouting: "All on video! Both of you motherfuckers are fired tomorrow," and threatening to send the clip to her relatives, which the prosecution claims that he later did.

"The defendant should be given a medal for the amount of restraint he showed when he entered that scene," Mr Donis' lawyer, Howard Greenberg, told the jury.
"He commits a trespass that in a sane jurisdiction is a violation and not a crime, and he uncovers the greater evil of his wife screwing some stranger. No jury is going to convict this man of anything, let alone a felony."
In cross-examination, Mr Greenberg was reprimanded by the judge for vulgarity after he repeatedly used the word 'banging' to describe the incident.
"Did you even think what effect the defendant finding out about you two would have on their child?" Greenberg asked Lopez, to which he answered in the affirmative. "But you banged her anyway?"
"Did you take advantage of your position as his wife's superior to get her into bed with you?" he further chastised Mr Lopez, adding "who the hell are you to sleep with another man's wife?
"It was never discussed because he was out of the picture as far as I was concerned," responded Lopez.
Sean Donis and Nancy Donis have subsequently divorced, but the Donis still faces a long period in jail if the court decides that his decision to use Find My iPhone to trace his ex-wife was unlawful surveillance and that his entering the unlocked house of Albert Lopez constitutes burglary.
