Texas ER physician charged with recording woman without consent

An emergency room physician in Bryan, Texas, faces a felony charge after recording a woman without her knowledge during what she alleged was a sexual assault, according to The Bryan-College Station Eagle.

Anthony Amoroso, MD, an ER physician with privileges at CHI St. Joseph Health in Bryan, was charged with invasive visual recording, a state felony.

Dr. Amoroso and David Miranda, MD, an ER physician from West Lake Hills, Texas, were both named in police documents related to incident that took place March 25. The woman told police she had been at a bar with coworkers in downtown Austin, Texas, and consumed several drinks.

The woman's cell phone indicates she accepted a ride from the ridesharing service at 1:51 a.m., according to a copy of the affidavit obtained by The Eagle.

The woman told police her next memory was waking up to a man she later identified as Dr. Miranda sexually assaulting her. The woman described to police several instances of sexual assault and misconduct over several hours, allegedly performed by both physicians, as she slipped in and out of consciousness and a blackout state.

Dr. Miranda was charged with felony drug possession after police found cocaine in his home while executing a search warrant during the sexual assault investigation. Dr. Miranda was indicted on the drug charge last week.

Neither man has been charged in connection to the alleged sexual assault, according to the arrest warrant.
