Dentist Charged With Filming Minors in Restroom at Popular Chicago Beach

A Chicago dentist is charged with possession of child pornography after being arrested for filming children and adults in a beach men's room.

Gregory Stump, 68, was arrested at about 4:15 p.m. Friday in the 1600 block of North Lake Shore Drive, where the popular North Avenue Beach is located. 

Police said officers arrested Stump "as he was surreptitiously video recording a 16-year-old male juvenile in a men's bathroom."

Cook County court records say a police officer on Friday found Stump in a stall, naked and holding his cellphone over a partition. Assistant Cook County State's Attorney Joseph Carlson says in the next stall was a 16-year-old boy taking off his swimsuit. 

A search of Stump's cellphone turned up images of teens in various stages of undress and adults using a urinal in the bathroom. 

Stump was released Monday on electronic monitoring after a hearing. 

Defense attorney Richard Kling got a judge to alter terms of Stump's release. Stump will be allowed to see underage patients but only if their parents are present.
