Former nursing home aide pleads guilty to voyeurism charge

MADISONVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A former aide at a western Kentucky
nursing home has pleaded guilty to taking cell phone video of a
nude patient.
The Messenger in Madisonville reported 20-year-old Phyllis
Johnson entered her plea Tuesday in Hopkins County Circuit Court.
Johnson was fired from the Dawson Pointe nursing home in Dawson
Springs after her April 19 arrest for two videos which showed a
nude elderly woman sitting in a shower.
She was originally charged with the felony crime of video
voyeurism. Hopkins County Commonwealth's Attorney David Massamore
said Johnson pleaded to the less serious charge of voyeurism.
Johnson is scheduled for sentencing May 17 with the
recommendation of a 12-month sentence with 30 days of it served in
jail.
