State worker fired after taking explicit photos

Posted:

Springfield, Ill. (AP) -- Officials say a state employee was fired after an investigation found he had taken sexually explicit photos and a video of himself at work and emailed inappropriate images.

 

The Illinois Executive Ethics Commission reported Friday that the Illinois Department on Aging fired John Hastings in December. Hastings was responsible for authoring computer code and inputting data for agency programs.

 

An executive inspector general's investigation found 225 pornographic images on his state computer. There were 13 explicit images and a video of a man identified as Hastings.

 

The heavily redacted report indicates Hastings took at least some of the photos at work and sent an inappropriate image to a female co-worker.

 

The report says Hastings acknowledged the wrongdoing. A phone number could not be located for him.
