Durham psychologist pleads guilty to professional misconduct
Greg Carter can't practise for three months
DURHAM -- A former psychologist with the Children's Aid Society has been suspended from practising for three months by a disciplinary panel.
Greg Carter appeared before the panel with the College of Psychologists at a hearing in Toronto Tuesday afternoon. He pleaded guilty to professional misconduct.
Mr. Carter worked with the CAS on a contract basis from 2003 to 2009. The majority of the work he conducted for the agency was assessments of children in care. The contract was terminated in 2009 after complaints about Mr. Carter were made to the college.
Mr. Carter, 63, was charged Jan. 25 with fraud, obstructing justice and perjury. Durham police allege Mr. Carter falsely identified himself as a psychologist in family court proceedings, identifying himself as a doctor. Some of those hearings resulted in parents losing bids for custody of their children, police said.
