LAKE CHARLES, La. -- A former Lake Charles gynecologist accused of taking inappropriate photos of his unsuspecting patients will spend the next eight years in prison.

The American Press reports 65-year-old Peter Raymond LaFuria pleaded guilty in state district court Wednesday to five counts of video voyeurism, five counts of sexual battery, five counts of molestation of a juvenile and five counts of obscenity.

He was sentenced to 23 years in prison, with 15 years suspended.

LaFuria was first arrested in May 2007 and charged with video voyeurism, which grew to 269 felony charges. All but the 20 charges he pleaded to were dropped Wednesday.
