"Lynette's Law" Back On MD Docket

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - A group looking to stop sexual abuse by mental health therapists is again pushing a bill. 

The group, Lynette's Law, looks to prohibit specified professional counselors or therapists from engaging in sexual acts. The bill failed last year in the Senate.

Supporters for Lynette's Law testified in front of the Maryland House last week.

"Any type of relationship during therapy is highly exploitive," said Heather Sinclair. "Counselors, therapists and psychologists, they have the power to do a lot of good for people, but they also have the power to do a lot of destruction to people."

The bill currently sits in the judiciary committee.
