A Connecticut socialite pleaded guilty to improperly filming minors in a mysterious plea deal that dropped other, more serious charges of child sexual abuse.
Hadley Palmer, 53, mother of four, wife of a financier and daughter of a wealthy hedge fund owner. She lives in Belle Haven, Connecticut in a $10 million home and has four children with ex-husband Bradley.
Palmer makes regular appearances in the Connecticut social scene and is regularly photographed at charity events.
Last October, she was arrested on charges of voyeurism, invasion of privacy and harm to a child.
The voyeurism charge against her consisted of recording someone naked or in their underwear without their consent or knowledge, with the “intention to arouse or satisfy the sexual desire of such person (the accused) or any other person”.
However, the case has remained closed since then, and there has been no information about what she allegedly did.

According to AP reporter Dave Collins, who opposed the judge’s decision to dismiss the case, the plea agreement includes prosecutors dropping charges of using a minor in an indecent performance, a class A felony and possession of child pornography.
Prosecutor Daniel Cummings has not publicly commented on the case.
Palmer is due in court on Aug. 1 for sentencing. The plea agreement stipulates that she must serve in prison from 90 days to five years.
It remains unclear what led to her arrest last October.
The New York Times first reported on it today, along with details of the plea deal.
According to this report, both she and the juvenile victims asked the judge to dismiss the case.
Along with Palmer, the psychologist was also charged with failing to report what she allegedly did.
Dr. Jerome Broadley was charged with willfully failing to report Palmer’s alleged crimes to the authorities, which he is required by law to do.
Hadley Palmer filed for divorce from her financier husband Bradley in June 2020.
It is unclear if their divorce was finalized.
It is known that the couple has four children, including one 19 years old. The age of the remaining children is unknown.
