Doctor charged with illegally recording sex at West Lake Hills home


Austin police have charged a College Station doctor with illegally recording a woman without her knowledge during what she has alleged was a sexual assault.

According to an arrest affidavit, Dr. Anthony Amoroso is charged with invasive visual recording, a state jail felony for which he faces up to two years behind bars. The document, filed Thursday, said police conducted a forensic search of Amoroso’s cell phone and determined that he sent video clips of the woman on top of Dr. David Miranda.

The woman confirmed to police that she was the woman in the video and said that she did not give permission for the recording, the affidavit said.

Amoroso was being booked into the Brazos County Jail on Friday afternoon.

In a previous interview with the Statesman, Amoroso’s attorney, Brian Roark, said Amoroso had passed a polygraph regarding his conduct that evening, and said he was innocent of any wrongdoing.

Miranda has previously been charged with felony drug possession after police said they found cocaine in his home while executing a search warrant as part of the sexual assault investigation.

A Travis County grand jury indicted Miranda on the drug charge this week.

The American-Statesman reported about the ongoing investigation in August after Miranda’s arrest.

An arrestaffidavit regarding Miranda’s arrest on the drug charge named Amoroso as a suspect in the alleged crime against the woman, who told police that she had been at Little Woodrow’s downtown and that she woke up in a haze at a home she later determined was Miranda’s in West Lake Hills.

Miranda practiced medicine in Killeen at the time of his arrest.
