Clinical social worker Erica M. Schoch suspended for romantic letters to inmate
August 11, 2012
On April 11, 2012, the Wisconsin Marriage & Family Therapy, Professional Counseling, and Social Work Examining Board suspended the license of clinical social worker Erica M. Schoch for six months.
The Board’s document states that in August 2011, Schoch, who was employed with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, began to exchange letters of a romantic nature with an inmate enrolled in her Earned Release Group.
Between August and September 2011, she wrote three letters and received approximately five letters from the inmate.
An investigation by her employer however did not produce evidence of a physical relationship or the delivery of articles to the inmate.
Schoch was also required to pay $200 for the cost of the Board’s proceeding.
