Wisconsin social worker David A. Schneider blames 2001 brain operation for 2010 sexual assault on patient
May 9, 2011
On April 13, 2011, licensed clinical social worker David A. Schneider surrendered his license to the Wisconsin Marriage & Family Therapy, Professional Counseling and Social Work Examining Board.
According to the Board’s Order, Schneider was convicted of sexual assault on December 3, 2010 in Milwaukee County Circuit Court. The basis of the prosecution against him was “an incident in which he had inappropriate contact with a client.”
In surrendering his license, Schneider asserted that “a consequence of surgery in October 2001 to remove a tumor from his brain was impairment of impulse control, which was likely the cause of his inappropriate contact with his client.”
