Eike Blohm Arrest With Child Porn
In a press release Friday, prosecutors said state investigators found hundreds of videos from a secret camera that were taken in the staff bathroom at the University of Vermont Medical Center and elsewhere. Among the videos are 21 that allegedly show a boy bathing in a place associated with Blohm. Blohm’s attorney declined to comment Friday on the case.
Investigators said they also found more than 130 images of child pornography, involving other minors after receiving a search warrant to search Blohm’s iPad. Blohm was charged in state court with multiple counts of voyeurism last month. Since then, he has been fired by the hospital, which is the largest in the state. The former doctor, who holds American and German citizenship, faces a minimum prison sentence of 15 years and has significant financial resources, prosecutors said.
“Experiencing the precipitous fall from successful doctor to an inmate in federal prison may be too much for Blohm and, given the foregoing, makes it very likely that he would choose to flee,” prosecutors wrote in court documents. “He presents a significant risk of flight.”
