Fired Kaiser pharmacist agrees to 12-year sentence for secretly recording co-workers

A former pharmacist from Kaiser Permanente has pleaded guilty to charges of using hidden cameras to secretly record his co-workers.  As part of a plea agreement, he will serve a 12-year prison sentence, according to The Oregonian.

Johnny Tuck Chee Chan pleaded guilty Sept. 10 to first-degree invasion of privacy.

Prosecutors said Mr. Chan recorded more than 78 people at the Kaiser pharmacy in Portland and a Banana Republic store in Portland. The reported acts took place in 2016 and 2017.

Mr. Chan allegedly put the camera in a single-user restroom. Most recordings were taken of women changing. Investigators also said he also took "upskirt" footage of female co-workers sitting at desks at Kaiser Permanente.

A Kaiser employee found the camera in November 2017 and the organization fired Mr. Chan.

Under the plea agreement, Mr. Chan will need to register as a sex offendor for the rest of his life.  

He has surrendered his pharmacist's license. He will be sentenced in October.
