Idaho Hospital Director Guilty of Stalking
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The leader of the public hospital in Blackfoot has pleaded guilty to second-degree stalking in the wake of an investigation by the Idaho Attorney General. Bingham Memorial Hospital Chief Executive Officer Louis Kraml entered the plea Friday in 7th District Court.
He was indicted last month along with three other hospital staff for recording telephone calls made by and to former hospital director Robert Rosin and staff. The wiretapping allegedly occurred between June 2009 and August 2010. In a plea agreement, Kraml pleaded guilty to misdemeanor stalking and was sentenced to 30 days in jail.
But the judge suspended the sentence and withheld judgment in the case. The Attorney General has issued a warrant for the arrest of Jack York, one of three information technology employees accused of helping Kraml.
