Abduction has been a signature specialty of a nurse attorney when handling cases for some nurses. However, some nurses tend to forget this fact because they really felt like they should be responsible even if they never intended to commit such an error.
On or about November 2013, an Rn from El Paso admitted to the 2012 kidnapping of a 3-day-old baby and fatal shooting of his mother in a plea bargain arrangement in which she received life in prison without the possibility of parole.
This issue was filed as a complaint and sent to the Texas Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction in all cases that may affect the status of an RN or LVN’s license in the future. But they advise nurses to attend a hearing first before placing the sentence, which the RN attended for her career’s security.
As a defense, the RN stated she felt remorse as a mother of three children herself, knowing her actions on April 17, 2012, left 28-year-old, newborn son, and his two brothers without a mom.
She also stated she had suffered a miscarriage but had not told her fiancé
In addition, although several of her family members had been diagnosed with mental issues, she said that since the shooting his client is taking some antidepressants, but not any psychotropic drugs.
As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license to disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a nurse attorney for assistance, knowing she might have had a reason to defend herself in the first place. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas nurse attorney as well.
So if you’re facing a complaint from the Board, it’s best to seek legal advice first. Texas Nurse Attorney Yong J.
