EASTON, Md. (AP) — A mental health agency director charged with hiding a video camera in a bathroom will plead guilty to nine misdemeanor charges under an agreement with prosecutors. 

An attorney for Joseph Newell, executive director of Mid-Shore Mental Health Systems Inc., announced the plea deal agreement with prosecutors during a pretrial hearing Friday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed and a plea hearing was scheduled Feb. 3. 

Newell, who is charged with hiding a video camera in a unisex bathroom at the agency’s offices, was placed on indefinite administrative leave after he was charged in June. 

Easton police have said the camera contained a memory card with video of Newell installing the device.
