Woman arrested for using stolen psychology license
Posted on Tuesday, January 17th, 2012
A Sugar Land woman was arrested last week by Pearland Police after the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists notified authorities that she was using a stolen license to practice as a psychologist in the city.
The 38 year-old is believed to have conducted more than ten examinations on patients with the license.
A facility she approached for employment did a background check and discovered the woman was not the same person pictured on the license.
According to police, the real owner of the psychology license had no idea it was being used by someone else and has been cooperating with law enforcement’s investigation. The woman is facing second-degree felony charges of tampering with a governmental license with the intent to defraud or harm another.
