Pelayo Cerulia, the alleged “Pines Peeping Tom,” is asking to be released on bond.

In court on Thursday, defense argued he is a lifelong resident of the communities, active in charities, and  a longtime insurance executive who should be granted bail.

Defense put his sister on the stand in an effort to show he was with family when he allegedly committed his non-bondable offense.

An inconvenient  fact for the defense however is that the non-bondable offense – burglary with battery- occurred at 3:30 a.m.

The state argued no one in his family could know where he was at that time.

Prosecutor Kathleen Bogenschutz said Cerulia should not be released – calling him a “predator.”

“He cannot live within the confines of society,” said Bogenschutz .”He has been preying on women in this community for years.”

She said neither the state nor his alleged victims want him out.

“The only purpose of doing this to these women was to frighten them. To scare them. To make them feel like prisoners in their own homes,” said Bogenschutz

Around 5 p.m., Judge Andrew Siegel concluded the hearing saying he would issue a written order on his decision on whether to grant Cerulia bond.

In a hearing the day before, police showed the judge a series of surveillance videos and pictures that they say shows the peeping tom in action – peering into women’s apartments, watching them in their unguarded moments and pleasuring himself.

Pembroke Pines Police Det. Joseph Cabreras aid other images showed the peeper preparing to smash a window with a slingshot and even spray-painting windows with surveillance cameras in them on at least three occasions to obscure the camera’s view.
