Any type of accusations or criminal case can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding criminal cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
Criminal cases are a must to be observed properly not only by the Board but by a nurse attorney. An example of this happened to an LVN in DeSoto when he was accused of a charge possessing child pornography.
According to accusations, the LVN had sex with a 14-year-old Arlington girl he met online.
Authorities say the LVN first contacted the girl on the social media app Whisper on March 29, 2017, while using the screen name “Mr.” When she told him her age, he replied “I didn’t think you would be that young,” but continued the conversation and encouraged her to sneak out of her house and meet him.
The next day, the LVN drove from DeSoto to the girl’s home in Arlington to pick her up. They went back to the LVN’s home for sex, and he drove her home in the early-morning hours of March 31.
The victim’s mother learned about the incident sometime later and notified Arlington police.
An officer, pretending to be the girl, then used Whisper to contact the LVN, who said: “I’ve been wanting to see you ever since that night.” They arranged a meeting on May 10, 2017, and police arrested the LVN when he arrived at the girl’s home.
When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the LVN states that everything was just an accusation. However, without the valid reason and defense to properly explain the LVN’s side, the LVN was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN’s license into disciplinary action.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
