Man accused of taking nude photos of patients held on $250,000 bond


KENT, Ohio — Bond was set at $250,000 Tuesday for a Huron County man accused of taking photos and video of patients undressing for ultra sounds and other procedures at a Tiffin medical center.

Jamie Aguirre, 43, of Willard, Ohio was charged with four counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented materials. He appeared in Portage County Court Tuesday and is being held in the Portage County jail in Kent.

Brimfield Township Police Chief David Blough said Mr. Aguirre was arrested following a routine traffic stop on State Rt. 43 at I-76 late Sunday night.

Officers found suspected marijuana and other drug paraphernalia in his pickup truck, but it was his cell phone that led police to "at least 65 to 70" photographs of patients from Advanced Medical Imaging in Tiffin where Mr. Aguirre was employed as an ultrasound technician, Chief Blough said.

The patients ranged in age from 5 to 62, he said.

"It shocks the senses that somebody could be going in for medical testing, taking off your shirt for an ultrasound and you don't know you're on video," Chief Blough said.
