Nanny Cam Attack Suspect Did Time for Similar Crime in '91

    Nanny Cam Attack Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

    A New Jersey man has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, burglary and other charges in the beating of a young mother — captured by a nanny cam — in front of her 3-year-old daughter at their home in an upscale Garden State community late last month. Tracie Strahan reports (Published Tuesday, July 2, 2013)

    A man accused of attacking a New Jersey woman as she watched cartoons with her 3-year-old and while being recorded by a nanny cam was once sentenced to 10 years in prison for a similar crime.

    The Star-Ledger reports that public records show Shawn Custis pleaded guilty to a 1991 case in Delran.

    Authorities say he broke into a house 22 years ago and started going through a jewelry box in a bedroom, then hid in a closet when the front door opened before attacking the woman who lived there in front of her 18-month-old daughter.

    He has been convicted since then of 12 different felonies around New Jersey, according to the newspaper.
