FULTON, N.Y. -- A Fulton nurse convicted of taking a photo of an unconscious patient's penis with her iPhone last year surrendered her license, according to the New York State Education Department.
Kristen Johnson was forced to give up her license as part of a plea deal where she pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disseminating of unlawful surveillance photos.
Her conviction came after a nine-month investigation by the Onondaga County District Attorney's Office into complaints from her Upstate University Hospital co-workers that she sent pictures of two patients via text message.
She was originally charged with two counts of second-degree unlawful surveillance and one count of second-degree disseminating unlawful surveillance.
The felony charge against her was reduced as part of her plea, which also requires Johnson to spend three years on probation.
According to the state, Johnson surrendered her license and did not contest the charge of moral unfitness in the practice.
What’s the “big deal”?
Possibly not guilty.
She is an attractive woman.... And perhaps she intended it as a compliment... Or not.. Who knows....
But she violated him. His person and his privacy.
I’m surprised it’s that minor of a charge.
Seems rather serious.
I thought we were told all through the 90s that character didn’t matter.
Johnson takes picture of Johnson, news at 11.
Im surprised its that minor of a charge.
Seems rather serious.

Well, in my role of ‘Devil’s Advocate’,
imagine the furor if a male took nekkid pitchurs of HER while ‘knocked out’.
Next time I go the hospital, I am asking security to do a sweep for Junk Cams.... :)
sounds a bit dramatic to me. taking her license. charging her.
she probably thought it was funny and she sounds incredibly immature.
but a suspension and a shrink would have been fine.
maybe it’s just me.
Government gone mad.
Betcha the other nurses who reported her looked like Rosie
Attractive enough that all she had to do was ask?
You wouldn’t think it was so funny if your kids/grandkids, all their facebook friends and your neighbors saw you (in all your glory) on YouTube or that new website........http://www.pictureofdp0622slittlepecker.com
She should be arrested and charged with a sex crime, registered as a sexual predator and never be allowed to work near a hospital or any patient ever again.
Her stupid childish act is going to cost the hospital big bucks, as well as any professional credibility they might have had by the time the patient gets through suing the crap out of them.
If she took the pics to make fun of the guy with her friends, that is pretty nasty. If she took it out of admiration or lustful appreciation, the guy might not mind that much...or he may...so maybe if the guy did not feel much harm was done they should not be too hard on her.
