Pediatric Nurse Accused of Abusing Second Baby

A pediatric nurse accused of performing sex acts on an infant and videotaping it may have done the same thing to another baby.

A grand jury indictment filed Sept. 26 accuses Michael William Lutts, 50, of taking sexually explicit digital photos of an 11-month-old girl. Read the full indictment here

The pictures were allegedly taken around July 24. One month later, Lutts was arrested at his College Grove home and charged with sexual exploitation of a child.

The Kaiser Permanente nurse was accused of performing lewd acts on his 2-month-old foster son, who was born prematurely.

According to court documents, the alleged abuse included Lutts touching and manipulating the baby boy’s genitals while masturbating, among other things. Pictures show the hospital tag was still attached to the infant’s leg.

The baby has been placed in the care of Child Protective Services.

Kaiser Permanente has said Lutts was suspended from work and would not be returning until the investigation and criminal proceedings are completed.
