Social media has become a powerful tool for communication in the digital age we live in. But despite all of the advantages it comes with, there are a few disadvantages that have ultimately led to serious problems on the home front for some people. In one couple’s case, the Find My iPhone application has opened a big can of worms with the husband discovering his wife Nancy Donis’ affair. According to New York Post, Sean Donis used the iPhone app and found himself wandering into the home of a New York man. The rest of the story is definitely mind-blowing because Donis went to great lengths to prove his wife’s infidelity.
Caught On Camera:
When Donis snuck into the home back in April of 2016, he discovered his wife in bed with another man. To his shock and dismay, that man was also her boss, Albert Lopez, who was the COO of Gotham City Orthopedics in Clifton, NJ. Despite his wife’s infidelity, he was arrested and slapped with several charges including burglary and unlawful surveillance. The charges even carried the possibility of 15 years behind bars. But in a bizarre turn of events, Donis actually ended up walking away Scot-free because he was found not guilty on all charges.
The Debate Over His Violations:
Donis’ charges led to a serious debate between jurors but it didn’t take long for them to reach a verdict. After only 20 minutes of deliberation, the jury returned a verdict ruling in his favor. Donis’ lawyer, Howard Greenberg also argued that he believed his client “deserved to be more than just cleared in court” because things could have ended very differently. “He should get a medal for not acting out a crime of passion when he walked in on the scene he did,” Greenberg said in his closing statement. “In the end, it’s a very simple case. … He commits trespassing that in the same jurisdiction is a violation, not a crime, and uncovered the greater evil of his wife screwing a stranger.”
Although many people probably agree with Greenberg’s arguments, prosecutors argue that Donis still did not have permission to enter the home. Donis, himself, shared a different perspective of the situation in order to defend himself. “Define permission,’’ Sean Donis said. “My wife was there. I rang the doorbell and knocked on the door. She could have been kidnapped, you never know.” Prosecutor Nabeela McLeod replied, “But you said you wanted to catch her. You felt you had the right.” Donis fired back, “If my wife wasn’t there, I wouldn’t have gone in.”
McLeod went on to argue that Donis was simply a scorned husband looking “to embarrass, humiliate and degrade [the pair] as much as possible.’’ But, despite the arguments from the prosecution, the jury sided with Donis. Needless to say, Donis is relieved that the ordeal is finally behind him. “Just thank God it’s finally over,’’ said Donis. “Now I can finally breathe.’’
