State of Ohio reprimands psychologist Sylvester Briggs

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 5:58 pm

On January 18, 2013, the Ohio Board of Psychology reprimanded Sylvester Briggs, Ph.D.

The Board document states that in November 2011, Briggs was placed administrative leave from his position at the Chillicothe Correctional Institute (CCI) pending an investigation into his conduct as psychologist supervisor.

The document states that the leave was related to, among other things, Briggs authorizing inmates to have access to and/or possess confidential mental health information, in violation of policy.

This is reported to have occurred when Briggs utilized three CCI inmates to help relocate his offices.

  1. Dr. Briggs is a very good Psychologist. I worked with Dr.Briggs for years at CCI. The inmate Porter’s routinely helped staff relocate offices. The inmate files were in closed boxes and inmates routinely carried medical files to the outpatient area in boxes. Due to the State of Ohio wanting to downsize the higher paid employees they found ways by harassment to force people out. 7 supervisors left this area at once. Dr. Briggs should not be disciplined. It was truly harassment.
