An emergency medical technician who pleaded guilty to official misconduct after posting a picture of a strangling victim on his Facebook page is now surrendering his license.Under a plea deal, Mark Musarella, 48, agreed to complete 200 hours of community service, give up his license and agree not to reapply for a new one in the future.

Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan says Musarella also waived his right to appeal.

Musarella has also been fired from his job at Richmond University Medical Center.

Authorities say Musarella took a picture of 26-year-old Caroline Wimmer's body after she was strangled in 2009. It is considered a violation of general regulations for EMS workers.
