COEUR d’ALENE — An orthopedic surgeon is facing felony charges after he allegedly hid a camera in a staff bathroom at his medical office, according to the Coeur d’Alene Police Department.

Dr. Spencer Greendyke, 68, is charged with two counts of sexual exploitation of a child by preparation of sexually exploitative material and six counts of video voyeurism, all felonies.

The charges stem from March 21, when one of Greendyke’s employees contacted Coeur d’Alene police about digital storage devices at Greendyke’s medical office. Greendyke appears to be the sole medical provider at River’s Edge Orthopedics in Coeur d’Alene.

The devices contained video footage from “what appeared to be a hidden camera in a staff bathroom and showed victims in various stages of undress,” a news release said.

Police obtained a search warrant for Greendyke’s medical office and residence.

“While executing the search warrant, additional evidentiary items were located and seized,” a news release said.

Police obtained a $1.5 million warrant for Greendyke’s arrest Thursday. Greendyke turned himself in around 4:40 p.m. Friday, police said, though he wasn’t listed on the jail’s inmate roster as of 7 p.m.

“All of the known victims in this case have been notified,” a news release said.

In Idaho, sexual exploitation of a child by preparation of sexually exploitative material is punishable by up to 30 years in prison, while video voyeurism carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
