SPRINGFIELD, Mo. | Springfield police say a former health worker is suspected of persuading four females to weigh themselves naked, then secretly videotaping it.
The 29-year-old was fired from his job with St. John's Health System but has not been charged. The Springfield News-Leader reported Friday that he admitted the misdeeds to police, and that one of the females was a 16-year-old.
An affidavit said the suspect instructed the women to weigh nude to obtain a more accurate weight, and moved the scales into a secluded room for privacy.
He could face state charges of invasion of privacy and federal child pornography charges.
