PARAGOULD — 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 cellphone 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 cellphone -- including what appear to be images of the victim.
