Professional Psychological Evaluator for Courts Arrested on Charges of Falsifying His Credentials

An upstate New York mental health professional (Evaluator) has been arrested for allegedly falsifying his credentials … for the purpose of securing contracts with government agencies to perform court-ordered psychological evaluations.

Several charges were brought against him, some of them felonies.

The institutions reportedly granting some or all of his degrees were not legimate educational institutions, but rather pay-for-a-degree mills.

The Evaluator reportedly performed numerous court-ordered psychological evaluations over the years, which played decisive roles in child custody and timesharing rulings in family court cases, among other cases.

If the Evaluator is convicted, it could spur a significant amount of family court litigation in the communities he served.
