Former ER doctor pleads guilty to voyeurism, lewd conduct

July 14, 2021 GMT

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A former emergency room doctor at the University of Vermont Medical Center has pleaded guilty in state court to lewd and lascivious conduct and voyeurism after prosecutors say police found hidden cameras in a hospital bathroom with hundreds of images of hospital employees.

On Tuesday, the judge did not accept the plea agreement for Eike Blohm, 39, because she first wants to hear from some of the 108 identified victims, WCAX-TV reported.

Investigators also found digital devices at Blohm’s South Burlington home, some of which contained images of child pornography, prosecutors say. Blohm was fired from his job at the hospital. He was arrested in April 2020.

Last week, Blohm pleaded guilty in federal court to similar charges.

The plea deal also covers the federal case and calls for Blohm to serve nearly seven more years in prison.

An email was sent to Blohm’s attorney seeking comment.
