BALTIMORE COUNTY WOMAN CHARGED WITH PRACTICING NURSING WITHOUT A LICENSE

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Robyn Flora Ortiz- Harris, 28, of 2142 Cedar Barn Way, Baltimore County, was charged in Baltimore County and Baltimore City with offenses including Practicing Registered Nursing without a License and Misrepresentation as Authorized to Practice Nursing. The charges filed in Baltimore County Circuit Court allege that Robyn Harris practiced registered nursing without a license at a pediatric medical office in Catonsville, from September 24, 2001 until January 5, 2002. In additional charges filed in Baltimore City Circuit Court, the State alleges that from January 7, 2002 and continuing until April 12, 2002, Robyn Harris practiced nursing without a license at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore.

No trial dates have yet been set. The pending cases will be prosecuted by the Criminal Investigations Division of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. While the charges are merely accusations of wrongdoing and every individual is presumed innocent unless the State proves the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, practicing nursing in Maryland without a license and the other related charges are punishable by a maximum sentence of one year in jail, a fine of $5,000, or both.
