PARAGOULD, Ark. (AP) - A Paragould gynecologist is being sought on felony charges after allegedly taking photographs of a nude female patient.

Prosecutors on Monday charged 68-year-old Dr. Paul Becton with five counts of video voyeurism.

An affidavit says the patient notified Paragould police that she believed Becton used a cellphone to take photos of her during an exam. Prosecutor Scott Ellington says police notified Arkansas State Police who found numerous images of nude women on Becton’s cellphone - including what appear to be images of the victim.

Authorities said Wednesday that Becton has not been arrested.

A phone call to Becton’s office was answered by a woman who said he was not there and that she had no comment before hanging up. A call to a number listed for Becton rang unanswered.
