27-year-old nurse Kristen Johnson of Fulton, N.Y. has been stripped of her license after pleading guilty in November to taking a photo of an unconscious male patient’s penis with her iPhone and distributing it to co-workers.
In technical terms, that’s misdemeanor dissemination of unlawful surveillance photos. The incident took place in 2014 as she worked at Upstate University Hospital.
According to the New York Daily News, it was Johnson’s co-workers who initially complained that she had snapped the dirty photos and sent them out in text messages.
Johnson would have gotten a felony charge if she hadn’t accepted a plea deal to hand over her license to nurse.
She has since surrendered her medical license, and will be on probation for the next three years.
