Toilet selfie charge
A teenage resthome worker posted a selfie with an 88-year-old resident on the toilet online because she ‘‘wanted to share her love of work’’. The woman in the picture, who had cognitive impairment, has since died, Judge Tom Gilbert was told in the Christchurch District Court yesterday when the 18-year-old pleaded guilty to a charge of recklessly making an intimate visual recording. The teenager’s name has been suppressed until the court considers an application for her to be discharged without conviction on February 27. Judge Gilbert also suppressed the name of the Canterbury rest home where the teenager worked in August when she posted the photograph on a private Instagram account.
