Mother I'd Like To Film

JUNE 2--Meet Silvio Lucchesi. The Tennessee man allegedly used a hidden camera to film his girlfriend's mother naked inside a bedroom in his home. Lucchesi, 33, was busted last week after Grayce Dewitt 'observed a video camera in the closet of the bedroom she was getting dressed in after taking a shower.' Dewitt, who 'observed the camera to be recording,' reviewed the videotape and saw Lucchesi 'adjusting the recorder just before she observed herself in the nude.' A police review of the tape also revealed that Dewitt had been recorded 'in a similar state of undress' on May 26, two days before the video camera was discovered, according to a criminal complaint. Dewitt, a 54-year-old Arkansas resident, last week was visiting the suburban Memphis home her daughter shared with Lucchesi. In a brief interview, Lucchesi referred to his arrest as a 'bogus kind of a set-up situation,' but declined to talk further. 'I'm a nervous wreck,' he said, adding that he has gone 'days with no sleep.' Lucchesi is facing two counts of unlawful photographing, a misdemeanor. (3 pages)
