On March 6, 2003, the Psychology Board of California issued Simon Andrew Casey a license to practice as a psychological assistant. The state's document states that the license was then revoked and placed on probation for three years with terms and conditions.
According to the the Board's Statement of Issues, on August 14. 1998, a ten-count criminal complaint was filed against Casey, charging him with, among other things, grand theft, unlawful practice of psychology and filing a false and fraudulent claim for health care services.
On or about April 22, 1999, Casey entered a guilty plea to one count of filing a false and fraudulent claim for health care services and to one count of unlawful practice of psychology.
On or about July 16, 1999, Casey was convicted of the unlicensed practice of psychology (People v. Simon Andrew Casey, Orange County Superior Court, case #MB98SF0632). The Board's document states that "Between in or around 1993 and 1997, [he] provided services as a psychologist to several patients including Mr. J.B., Ms. L.B., Ms. J.G., Mr. G., Mr. 15 J.O, Ms. S.D., Master Je.O. and Master Jo.O." at his business, Psychoneurological Institute in Mission Viejo, California.
