Oregon State Hospital therapist James B. Mills loses license over porn viewing

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 1:40 pm

In December 2011, the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists revoked the license of marriage and family therapist JAMES B. MILLS.

Mills was employed at Oregon State Hospital (OSH) as a trainer and was responsible for teaching course to OSH employees.

In November 2010, Mills was teaching a course to OSH employees on motivational interviewing. While teaching the course, he also viewed pornographic material on his computer. Although he believed no one else could see the material, his activities were uncovered after several employees attending the training observed the images on his computer and reported it to the OSH Human Services.

These employees reported that they were unsettled by both the images they saw and the fact that Mills was viewing such material while teaching a course.

Mills admitted what he had been doing and resigned his position at OSH.

The Board issued a notice to Mills, informing him of his right to a hearing. He never responded to the Board’s correspondence.

In addition to revocation of his license, he was ordered to reimburse the board its costs of $406.90.
