WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A former University of Massachusetts doctor charged with photographing a woman in a bathroom stall has been ordered by a judge to share his cellphone passcode.

The Worcester Telegram (https://bit.ly/2pNSTxg ) reports the lawyer for Dr. Marcus Cooper is planning on filing a motion to ask the judge to reconsider the order.

Cooper is facing charges after a 26-year-old medical student told campus police she saw a cellphone come over the stall door and heard the click of a picture being taken.

Campus police say Cooper told them he was texting and emailing when he accidentally walked into the women’s restroom.

Prosecutors filed the motion so Cooper’s phone could be examined by forensics, saying deleted images can still be recovered.

Cooper has pleaded not guilty to his charges.
