North Carolina social worker Larry Maxey surrenders license; criminal investigation

July 19, 2012

The North Carolina Social Work Certification and Licensure Board recently reported the following disciplinary actions:

On March 23, 2012, the North Carolina Social Work Certification and Licensure Board issued a consent order in which it accepted the surrender of Larry Maxey's license to practice clinical social worker in the state of North Carolina.

According to the order, on February 1, 2012, the Board received a complaint alleging that Maxey sexually assaulted a client following a therapy session. Maxey, on the advice of his lawyer, declined to make any statements to the Board on the matter, other than denying the allegation.

The document states that Maxey is also the subject of a pending criminal investigation.

I wonder that myself. Furthermore, this is not the first incident; it's just the first publically reported one.

The supervisor who hired Maxey knows his record but is a long-time friend. Regardless, a man with this kind of record should never be allowed to work in social services, especially with children. He also has another charge from 2009 for destruction of personal property. Shawn, I am with you in wondering how he is in the position he is in.
