CALVERT COUNTY WOMAN CHARGED WITH PRACTICING
DENTAL HYGIENE WITHOUT A MARYLAND LICENSE

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Tracy Deiter Grimes, 34, of Port Republic, Maryland, was charged in Calvert County District Court on one count of practicing dental hygiene in Maryland without a license, and one count of misrepresenting herself as authorized to practice dental hygiene, both misdemeanors. It is alleged that the offenses occurred between February 19, 2001 and on or about August 6, 2001.

A September 4, 2002, trial date has been set. The pending cases will be prosecuted by the Criminal Investigations Division of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. While an indictment is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and every individual is presumed innocent unless the State proves the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, practicing dental hygiene in Maryland without a license and the related charge are punishable by a fine of $1,000.
