NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - A former Rutgers medical school professor is facing a 160-count indictment accusing him of taking photos of 26 partially dressed women, stealing the identity of four colleagues, and possessing an assault rifle, authorities said Wednesday.
Dr. James Goydos, 58, of East Brunswick, is also charged with burglary, official misconduct and impersonation, for crimes that occurred over a span of two years, with victims in New Brunswick and East Brunswick, Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey said in a statement Wednesday.
At the time these crimes were committed, Carey said, Goydos was employed as director of Melanoma and Soft Tissue Oncology at the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and a Professor of Surgery at Rutgers - Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick.
Carey said Rutgers police Officer Michelle Bolognini and Detective Paul Kelley of the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office investigated the case and discovered the crimes occurred from April 2016 through March 2018.
According to the indictment, Goydos took photos of women in various stages of undress in New Brunswick between Jan. 1 and Sept. 20 of 2017. The photos were taken when the victims were in a restroom, authorities said.
Goydos is alleged to have illegally entered the offices of four people at the cancer institute between April 2016 and March 2018 and took computer records that he used to impersonate those people, the indictment states.
Police first filed a charge against Goydos in March 2018 when officers went to his East Brunswick home and found an assault weapon, according to the prosecutor's office.
Goydos was banned from university property in April 2018, a Rutgers spokesman said.
Carey said police are continuing to investigate this case and ask that anybody with information call Rutgers police Detective Sgt. Carlos Rodriguez at (848) 932-8025, or Detective Paul Kelley of the prosecutor’s office at (732) 745-4499.
Goydos is scheduled to appear before Superior Court Judge Benjamin Bucca in on March 18, the prosecutor said.
