KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – The Dayton VA Medical Center psychologist accused of exposing himself in a Centerville parking lot was sentenced Tuesday morning.

Appearing in Kettering Municipal Court, Joseph Shuman of Centerville pled no contest and was found guilty of two charges of misconduct.

At the time, a spokesperson for the Dayton VA Medical Center told 2 NEWS Shuman had been removed from patient care pending the outcome of the investigation.
