Paragould doctor's bond set at $500,000

Posted: Updated:

 PARAGOULD, Ark. (AP) - A Paragould gynecologist and obstetrician charged with taking photographs of a nude female patient has been ordered held on $500,000 bond.

 Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington says Dr. Paul Becton made his initial appearance in Greene County District Court Thursday where bond was set.

 Becton did not enter a plea and his attorney did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

 Prosecutors have charged the 68-year-old Becton with five counts of video voyeurism.

 An affidavit says a female patient notified Paragould police that she believed Becton used a cell phone to take photos of her during an exam. Ellington says police notified Arkansas State Police who found numerous images of nude women on Becton's cell phone - including what appear to be images of the victim.
