A former staff member at a northern Ontario long-term care home is facing a criminal charge – after allegedly distributing intimate images of numerous residents without their consent.
Officials say the alleged incidents came to light last month when a staff member at Pioneer Manor in Sudbury claimed that five fellow employees were using Snapchat – to share images of people living in the home.
The city says there were 10 alleged victims whose pictures were taken and shared without their knowledge.
The five staff members were fired and Sudbury police took over the investigation.
On Wednesday, they announced that a 35-year-old woman is now facing one count of distributing images without consent.
No charges were laid against the other four employees.
