A 36-year-old Nampa mental health counselor is accused of sexually exploiting someone in his care, according to police.

Police were called to the 1100 block of South Ada Street at 4 p.m. Saturday to investigate a sex-related crime.

Mark Wiseman, who lives and works in Nampa, was identified as a suspect in the case. Police say he was providing psychotherapy to the victim.

Wiseman was arrested on a charge of sexual exploitation by a medical care provider. Under the law, medical care providers who engage in consensual sexual contact with patients or clients are guilty of exploitation.

If convicted, Wiseman faces a fine of up to $1,000, up to 1 year in jail, or both.

Police suspect there could be other victims. They ask anyone with information to contact Sgt. Donald Peck at 475-5714.
