Johns Hopkins Hospital has agreed to a $190 million settlement in the case of a former gynecologist who took photos and videos of thousands of patients during pelvic exams.

The money will go to the victims of Doctor Nikita Levy who worked for the prestigious medical center in Baltimore for 25 years.

In February 2013, a colleague suspected Levy was wearing a spy camera around his neck that looked like a pen while he examined women.

Levy confessed and police found images and videos on his home computer.

He committed suicide less than two weeks after confessing.
