A female caregiver has avoided jail after she posted a nude video of an overweight disabled patient on Snapchat.
Mary Ann McCarty, 32, secretly recorded the video of the 45-year-old man while she was working at the care facility in Portland, Oregon, back in January.
McCarty posted the video on Snapchat and made fun on the patient’s body size, saying he eats too much.
She also complained the man got on her nerves.
The footage was handed over to police by someone who knew McCarty. She was then fired by the care facility.
McCarty faced court on Monday where she pleaded guilty to one count of invasion of personal privacy in the first degree.
She was sentenced to three years probation after the victim agreed to her charge to a misdemeanor because he didn’t want her to suffer in prison, the Oregonian reports.
‘I’m not angry at her… I pity her,’ the victim told the court via phone on Monday.
‘Are you an evil person? I don’t know. But you have no compassion. And you are selfish. You are childish and immature for doing what you did.’
A tearful McCarty apologized to the victim, saying: ‘I don’t know what I was thinking,’ McCarty said.
‘I’m very sorry… and nothing like this is ever going to happen. I’m like so embarrassed because I’m 32, and I’m getting in trouble.’
In addition to probation, McCarty has been ordered to take anti-bullying classes.
