A Volusia County paramedic is accused of collecting nude photos of her co-workers and sharing them with employees while on duty.

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — A Volusia County paramedic is accused of collecting nude photos of her co-workers and sharing them with employees while on duty.

According to a report, Amy Sherlock admitted to county investigators she got the photos through a group text she was in with three male former co-workers.

She also admitted to having nude photos of four of her female co-workers, including a lieutenant, whose photo Sherlock claimed she got from her husband, Henry Sherlock, who worked with the lieutenant.

The county launched an investigation in September when an employee told officials during his exit interview that Amy Sherlock had shown him the photos of at least two co-workers.

He claims Sherlock told him the photos were for "insurance should she ever need to blackmail someone to get out of trouble” and that she kept a copy of each photo on her cellphone, personal computer and external hard drive.

The report details three other EVAC employees' claims that Sherlock either told them about or showed them the photos, and one employee claims Sherlock told him she had used the photos to get out of trouble in the past.

The report did not state how.

She said they would post nude photos of employees they were involved with and said the group text made her feel as if she had a friendship with the men.

Sherlock denied keeping copies of the photos and claims she deleted them in May 2017 when she found out she was pregnant with her daughter.

Henry Sherlock claims that his wife gave him permission to have sex with other women while she was in paramedic school, because "she did not have the time to pleasure him."

In a new supplement report released this week, Amy Sherlock denied showing the photos to any of her colleagues.

She claimed that one of her colleagues who said she showed him the photos invited her over to his house to use his hot tub while his wife was out of town, but that co-worker told county officials he does not own a hot tub.

The lieutenant also claims Henry Sherlock came on to her, but she denied his advances.

Amy Sherlock resigned. The county agreed to pay out more than 100 hours she had of personal time and waived her two week notice.

The interim director thanked her for her service.
