Massachusetts doctor convicted of using cellphone in ladies’ room

WORCESTER, Mass. — A Massachusetts cardiologist has been found guilty of using his cellphone to photograph a woman in a ladies’ room at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 2015.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that a jury convicted Dr. Marcus Cooper guilty Wednesday of photographing an unsuspecting nude person and disorderly conduct.

The victim, a medical student at the time, testified that she was using the restroom when she looked up and saw the camera lens of a cellphone over the top of the stall door.

Cooper’s attorney said his client walked into the ladies’ room by mistake. No photos were found.

Cooper no longer works for the medical school and entered into a voluntary agreement with the state Board of Registration in Medicine to stop practicing medicine in Massachusetts.
