SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A 26-year-old former central New York hospital nurse who took a photo of the intimate parts of an unconscious man has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disseminating of unlawful surveillance photos.

The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports (https://bit.ly/1QHEZWN ) that Kristen Johnson of Fulton will be forced to give up her nursing license as part of a plea deal. She used an iPhone 5 to photograph an incapacitated male patient’s genitals.

After a nine-month investigation, the Onondaga County District Attorney’s office charged Johnson in May with two counts of second-degree unlawful surveillance, a felony, and one count of second-degree disseminating unlawful surveillance, a misdemeanor.

The felony charge against her was reduced as part of her plea, which also requires Johnson to spend three years on probation.

She will be sentenced in February.
