SYRACUSE — A nursing assistant at an assisted living center was charged Monday with making an inappropriate video of a resident and sharing it on social media.

Cooper Paul Kelly, 19, of Farmington, is charged in 2nd District Court with voyeurism by electronic equipment, a third-degree felony.

On July 11, Kelly, while working as a certified nurse assistant at BeeHive Homes of Syracuse, "used his cellphone to video record a vulnerable adult" while that adult was going to the bathroom, the charges state. He then "distributed the video he had obtained to his friends through the use of Snapchat," the charges state.

BeeHive Homes released a prepared statement Monday saying Kelly was fired in July when the allegations were first brought to their attention.

"At BeeHive Homes, we have a zero tolerance policy for abuse and neglect. We have cooperated fully with this investigation. And once we were notified by authorities the employee was immediately terminated," according to the statement.

BeeHive Homes of Syracuse opened less than a year ago.
