A man who allegedly took inappropriate pictures of patients at Mildred Mitchell-Bateman Hospital in Huntington turned himself in Tuesday.
Reuben Fetty is charged with thirteen counts of criminal invasion of privacy for reportedly having nude photos of hospital patients on his cell phone.
State police say they don't believe the photos were taken in a sexual nature. Fetty told them the photos were to be shared as a joke between him and another former employee.
State police Sgt. G.N. Losh said "It just kind of shows people if people have an expectation of privacy, in a house or in this case, a hospital, that's taken serious, and if you violate that law, you're going to be arrested."
Fetty has resigned from his position at the hospital.
