Perez surrendered to authorities on April 27 of last year after being investigated by members of the TAMIU police, the DA's Office and the Laredo Police Department.
The former administrator at the university received a formal charge by a grand jury on charges of improperly recording a colleague even though she was not naked.
Perez placed a hidden video camera to record a woman who worked in his office and when it was revealed an investigation was launched. Ramon Villafranca Jr., head of the Special Victims Unit for the District Attorney, said the recordings were made while Perez worked as director of the Tamiu Small Business Development Center
The recordings had a sexual nature and the woman never realized she had been captured on video while working. Perez was presented at a preliminary hearing before Judge Hale who reviewed the information on the recommendation of the District Attorney to give him two years' probation, plus forced him to take counseling, be evaluated mentally and 30 days of mandatory lock up.
