Turning Academic Issues into Criminal Charges
The Inquirer article shows the terribly unfair and even devastating impact of turning an academic accreditation issue into federal criminal fraud charges. The article details how hardworking LPNs, many of them immigrants, turned to several Florida nursing schools to pursue online RN degrees.
Many of those nurses studied online for hundreds of hours, served hundreds more hours in closely supervised local clinical programs, and paid thousands of dollars in tuition, all to pass their RN exam and work for years in RN roles providing skilled and critical nursing services.
The Inquirer article notes that FBI and other federal and state officials continue to acknowledge that none of the implicated nurses are alleged to have harmed any patient due to their purportedly inadequate nursing education. And yet the FBI released to state licensing officials lists of over 7,600 nurses whom their criminal defendants implicated in the scandal.
False Allegations Destroy Careers
False allegations of criminal misconduct can destroy a career. You need not even face criminal charges to have false allegations ruin your professional reputation, record, and career. You may, in fact, be among the victims of a criminal scheme, as the above article shows many of the implicated nurses were, and still suffer by association with the criminal defendants and their allegedly fraudulent activities.
Employers, schools, professional licensing bodies, and the public may all take note when a criminal informant or public official implicates you in criminal wrongdoing. You could lose a professional license, job, career, and other things critically important to you, even like child custody and your reputation and relationships, when associated with a criminal scandal.
Retain the Lento Law Firm for Defense
The Inquirer article also shows how Philadelphia attorney Joseph Lento and the Lento Law Firm Team have been fighting to restore the good names and reputations of nurses wrongly implicated in the scandal.
The Lento Law Firm's Defense Team has been defending nurses nationwide against the scandal's fallout, in school, employment, licensing, and other proceedings. The article further discloses that the Lento Law Firm is preparing a class action lawsuit on the involved nurses' behalf.
