PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) – A Paragould doctor accused of voyeurism has entered a not guilty plea.

Dr. Paul Becton, accused of five counts of voyeurism, appeared in court Friday in Greene County and entered the plea, according to Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington.

A judge set a pre-trial date of September 2 and a jury trial date of September 15.

An investigation by Arkansas State Police showed Becton photographed a patient nude without her consent or approval. He was arrested on April 16 at the Fortune Inn in Newport.

Becton was released after posting a $500,000 bond.
