Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
I am sorry to hear that you were recorded, but as you said NY is a one party consent state. Entrapment, or anything similar as you stated above, would require you to prove that he made you say things that were not true or that you would not have said in any ordinary conversation whether recorded or not. In the case you describe above, you do not give any indication of this, you just say you did not know you were being recorded. Thus, I am afraid you cannot use entrapment or anything similar to try to get the tape excluded.
As far as your psychological issues, as your consent to the recording is not required by NY law, you cannot use the argument that you were not mentally competent and thus not able to give valid consent. Thus, I am afraid your disorders could not be used to invalidate the tape.
The fact he may have committed a crime would be able to be used to discredit his testimony, but what was said by you on the tape was said, so his criminal
background would not be sufficient to discredit the tape. If he did illegally make these video tapes, you would have to contact the women involved somehow and they would have to file suit or criminal charges against him for his conduct I am afraid.
Your mental disease or defect IS INDEED A LEGAL DEFENSE in NY. You would have to prove that you are not mentally capable of forming the intent to have committed a crime, but in doing this I am afraid you would then be labeled as incompetent. This does not mean you would be considered in need of supervision or confinement to a mental health treatment facilities for the rest of your life if the doctors testify that you were this way at the time of the alleged offense but since being treated you are no longer incapable of forming intent to commit a crime.
You cannot get in trouble for having any naked videos or pictures unless they contain minors in the videos or pictures.
