NURSING ASSISTANT CHARGED WITH IMPERSONATING A LICENSED PRACTICAL NURSE


Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that charges have been filed in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court charging Jerry Lee Holland of Saltzman Road, Severna Park, with Practicing Licensed Practical Nursing Without a License, Misrepresentation as Authorized to Practice Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN), and Counterfeiting a Public Document. It is alleged in the charges that Jerry Lee Holland, age 44, practiced licensed practical nursing at Psychotherapeutic Services, Inc., in Annapolis, Maryland without a license to practice LPN, and that he counterfeited a LPN License.

While a criminal information or charge is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and every individual is presumed innocent unless the State proves the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, if convicted, the maximum penalty for Practicing LPN Without a License and Misrepresentation as Authorized to Practice LPN is one year, a fine of $5,000, or both. If convicted, Counterfeiting a Public Document carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.

This case was investigated by Office of the Attorney General, Criminal Investigations Division (CID) and the Maryland Board of Nursing . The case will be prosecuted by the Criminal Investigations Division with the assistance of the Maryland State Police.
