Woman arrested for using stolen psychology license

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.

If your medical license has been stolen, you could face penalties for actions someone else has committed. Contact the Texas psychology license defense attorneys of the Leichter Law Firm by calling (512) 495-9995 to help protect your license.


Prison psychologist’s license suspended

A California prison psychologist has had her license suspended by the California Board of Psychology following charges that she lied to authorities about being sexually assaulted.

The 36 year-old woman, who used to work as a senior supervising psychologist at the California State Prison’s Sacramento location, is believed to have staged a break in with her friend, telling authorities that a stranger came in and beat, robbed, and raped her all to convince her husband to move to a safer neighborhood.

She could be facing a felony conspiracy charge and a misdemeanor charge for filing a false report. Officials are fighting to have her license revoked.
