Former University Hospital employee, Ricardo Dale Alva, 64, was arrested on March 7th and is being charged with Computer Pornography and Child Exploitation. The arrest warrant claims he had over 450 nude photos of girls ages 3 to 15. These were found on his computer and his cell phone.
He was arrested at University, where he was an administrative nursing supervisor.
The hospital released this statement:
He was placed on administrative leave without pay when we were informed by authorities of his arrest, and he was subsequently terminated. We conducted an extensive internal investigation and have cooperated fully with the authorities. We are confident there are no patients involved because we do not have an active pediatric services line. Pediatric patients are seen at the Children's Hospital of Georgia.
