It’s best to seek the help of an experienced nurse attorney when facing criminal charges. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
This is what happened to a certain LVN in Lufkin, Texas on January 31, 2018. On or about the said date, the LVN entered a plea of Guilty to FRAUDULENT USE/POSSESSION OF IDENTIFICATION – LESS THAN 5 ITEMS, a State Jail Felony committed on June 6, 2017.
On or about January 31, 2018, the LVN entered a plea of Guilty to FALSE STATEMENT TO OBTAIN PROPERTY >= $2,500 and < $30,000, a State Jail Felony committed on or about June 12, 2017.
As a result of the plea, the proceedings against the LVN were deferred, without entering an adjudication of guilt, and she was placed on community supervision for a period of four years and ordered to pay court costs.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the LVN the chance to defend herself. In response to the charges filed on her, the LVN states she made a regrettable decision and had a lapse in judgement. She explains she used her co-worker’s information to make an online purchase and complete an application.
However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the evidences were brought up to her. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
