of Sunfish Court, in Waldorf has been indicted and arrested in
Montgomery County for crimes including Counterfeiting and Practicing
Clinical Social Work Without a License. It is alleged that between
November 5, 2004 and February 11, 2005, Letitia Miller, 32, practiced
clinical social work at Innovative Behavior Treatment Center in
Silver Spring, Maryland by falsely representing that she had the
educational background and license to be a social worker. It is
further alleged that she counterfeited a social work license. No

and every individual is presumed innocent unless the State proves
the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, if convicted, the maximum
penalty for Practicing Social Work without a Licence is 90 days,
a fine of $500, or both. If convicted, Counterfeiting a Public
Document carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.
