Nurse surrenders license over photo of patient’s genitals

News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) – A 27-year-old former New York hospital nurse who was convicted last year of taking a photo of the intimate parts of an unconscious man has surrendered her license.

The state Education Department announced that Kristen Johnson of Fulton gave up her nursing license and didn’t contest the charge of moral unfitness.

Authorities say she used an iPhone 5 to photograph an incapacitated male patient’s genitals. The Onondaga County District Attorney’s Office charged her last year after a nine-month investigation with unlawful surveillance and disseminating unlawful surveillance.

She eventually pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disseminating of unlawful surveillance photos under a plea deal that required her to give up her license and spend three years on probation.WHAT OTHERS ARE CLICKING ON RIGHT NOW:
