  • Kristen J, 27, agreed to give up her license Monday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of sharing unlawful surveillance Photos
  • As part of a plea deal that nixed the felony charges in the case, the nurse who used to work at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse also agreed to spend three years on probation.
  • Her license was revoked for moral unfitness
  • Johnson was arrested last May following a nine-month investigation launched by the Onondaga County District Attorney’s Office because her colleagues reported that she had sent them inappropriate cellphone pictures multiple times.
