Wisconsin counselor Susan McAley guilty in Illinois, Wisconsin

January 25, 2012

On July 28, 2011, the Professional Counselor’s Section of the Wisconsin Marriage & Family Therapy, Professional Counseling and Social Work Examining Board suspended indefinitely the license of professional counselor Susan J. McAley.

The Board’s document states that between August 2009 and November 20, 2009, while employed as a counselor at Aalto Enhancement Center in Kenosha, Wisconsin, McAley stole a physician’s printed prescription pad and forged several prescriptions for Adderall, Dexedrine and Ritalin (all stimulants that are Schedule II controlled substances).

She had some of the prescriptions filled in Kenosha and others filled in Illinois.

McAley was charged in October 2009 in Lake County, Illinois with unlawful acquisition of a controlled substance and forgery and was found guilty in August 2010 of the controlled substance charge and sentenced to 24 months probation (the forgery charge was dropped).

On January 14, 2010, McAley was charged in Kenosha County, Wisconsin. She entered a plea of guilty as part of a deferred prosecution agreement. If she successfully completes her probation on the Illinois conviction, the Wisconsin charge will be dismissed. Based on these criminal convictions, the Board issued a Complaint and Notice of Hearing to McAley, who never responded to the Board.
