I'm not sure about the court, but the Nursing Board should be reviewing his license if he still has one.

Why is this an issue - are some people that afraid of death. Obviously for whatever reason these people were looking for ways to end their lives, if it wouldnt have been this person info than it would have been someone elses. Last I checked it was still the persons decision to go ahead with the information that ended there lives.

I saw this story on 20/20 a few weeks ago. I hope they don't throw these charges out. The girl from Canada was a very vulnerable college student. He's an evil man.

My impression based on news reports was that this evil thug was trolling the internet looking for vulnerable people that he could play games with. Typical Dbag lawyer speak to cloak this foul smelling fish in the 1st amendment.

His nursing license was revoked some time ago.
