Male Nurse Faces Criminal Charges For Secretly Videoing Nude Patients”

A nurse with voyeuristic tendencies is coming up against criminal charges after he had secretly recorded female patients, around eight of them, in a Philadelphia dermatology center, say authorities.

At last report, Close was lodged in Bucks County prison.

Lower Makefield police say 45-year-old James Close, of Abington, who works at Penn Medicine Dermatology, was arrested on February 13 after a 17-year-old patient noticed a phone on the ground had been recording her while naked.

Ismael was sacked as BVB coach on Sunday night having taken charge of just 17 games and recording just six wins in the process.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, the 17-year-old patient was in a radiation treatment booth when she noticed a silver iPhone laying at her feet, its screen indicating that it was recording live video and had been doing so for 25 seconds. According to WPVI News, police searched the phone (which was identified as belonging to Close) and found 18 videos of patients in the light booth.

The girl turned the device over to office staff, who then summoned police officers to the dermatology practice at 1000 Floral Vale Boulevard.

Now Close has been arrested and charged with more than 45 crimes, including filming a nude child and 36 counts of invasion of privacy.

Prosecutors announced Monday that Close is now facing 43 additional counts involving the original teen victim and seven other alleged victims, all adult women. The iPhone was recording video. But that was before she saw the cell phone. Authorities say the phone belonged to Close.

Numerous videos depict victims' private parts and/or bare breasts as they underwent the treatment either nude or in various stages of undress, the affidavit indicates. He is now being held at Bucks County Correctional Facility on $100,000 bail.

A total of 18 videos depicting nude patients were recorded on Close's phone between January 18 and February 13.
