An experienced Houston Nurse Attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead toward disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a Houston Nurse Attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an LVN committed on October 15, 2013, was one of those examples.
On or about October 15, 2013, an LVN from Houston was charged with ASSAULT (a Class A misdemeanor offense committed on June 22, 2013).
When asked about the incident, the LVN states he was breaking up with his girlfriend and she began to punch and slap him. He warded off her attack without ever hitting her. She lied to the police and he was arrested for assault. He accepted a fine and deferred adjudication to be done with the case.
On or about May 30, 2018, the same LVN was charged with VIOLATION OF PROTECTIVE ORDER-FAMILY VIOLENCE (a Class A misdemeanor offense committed on February 29, 2018). During the hearing, the LVN states he and his wife are going through a divorce. His wife has a protective order against him, requiring him to stay away from her place of employment, among other things. On February 27, 2018, she called him and asked for money for her sick child, and also asked that he take the money to her at her place of employment. He took the money and she was not there. He returned the following day and saw his wife walking with a man. She went inside without speaking to the LVN and the LVN asked the man if he was dating his wife. Meanwhile, the police were called and subsequently there was a warrant issued for his arrest.
The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the LVN and his license into disciplinary proceedings. He would have sought assistance from a good Houston Nurse Attorney to provide clarifications towards the case.
