North Carolina State Officials Responsible for Oversight:

Defense attorneys who work closely with (or for) the NCMB state that the NCMB is autonomous, without oversight.

 

Clearly, that’s dishonest, but disturbingly accurate.

 

§NCGS90 clearly provides legislative guidance.  This guidance is supposed to enacted by executive oversight; the Office of the Governor.

 

As if gubernatorial oversight and execution isn’t enough (it’s not!), there is a specific bicameral NC Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee that is charged with reviewing state programs and agencies.  These programs and agencies are supposed to submit annual reports to the committee, although the NCOSA found that none of them follow the law as written.

 

In addition to the Office of the Governor, Legislature, §NCGS90, the NC Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee there are also the offices of;

1.     The NC Attorney General.

2.     The NC Secretary of State (who has oversight over all agencies and businesses within the state).

3.     The NC Office of the State Auditor (NCOSA) who reviews state agencies to ensure efficient, legal service and to reduce waste and find and eliminate fraud.  Fraud, there’s a concept for the “Big 3”!

If all of this is inadequate, voter’s registration cards contain the name of local representation by the North Carolina General Assembly.

 

The Assembly provides each resident of the state with the voice of their Representative of the House and their member of the NC State Senate.  These legislators can easily be looked up on their website.

 

It’s their job to represent the citizens of the Great State of North Carolina!  They write laws pertaining to the state and to ensure through their many contacts that among their other duties, fraud is uncovered and the perpetrators receive appropriate treatment.

 

They cannot function without your input!  You are their job!

 

They generally love their job and want to stay there as long as possible by re-election.  The best way to ensure their re-election is to do everything possible to help their constituents.  Their constituents put them in their wonderful position (that’s you!)

 

DOCUMENT!

To review; please document the problems that you have been through and may be ongoing!

1.     Prepare a statement for each party that you’ll contact.

2.     Write down what happened to you, what was done to you.

3.     Document the interplay of the agencies involved (often the NCMB & NCPHP, the NCMS may also have a role).

4.     If attorneys were recommended by any particular agency, note that in your document.

5.     What agency recommended which attorney?

6.     Did you use that representation?

7.     How well did attorney defend you?

8.     Did the attorney seem to be looking out for your best interests or just “going through the motions”?

9.     Was your attorney responsive to you & your input?

10. Did a “Consent Order” come into play?

11. Was any proposed “Consent Order” accurate in all aspects, especially the “Findings of Fact” or were there distortions?

12. Was your treatment by the agency(s), including any “Consent Order” unbiased?

13. Did you feel forced or “overly encouraged” to sign the “Consent Order”, including statements to the effect that the order would give you a “much better deal” than if you went in front of the Board in a formal hearing? (Which by the way, is patently false based on our review of a decade of NCMB actions.  Would you prefer to be judged by a “jury of your peers” or a sole attorney who may have an “attitude”?)

14. What irregularities did you notice?

15. Was the NCPHP involved?

16. Was the NCPHP fair?

17. Did you have a choice in assessment and/or treatment facilities?

18. Did they fully explain to you the implications of all of your options?

19. Were they fair?

20. Did they provide strong advocacy for you before the NCMB or tell you to “do whatever the NCMB tells you to do”?

 

As you prepare your documentation refer to §NCGS90, documenting exactly what statutes were broken, when & by whom.  This will provide the officials and any future plaintiff attorneys with the information they need to prosecute the guilty parties for an easier, faster, more efficient process legally.

 

DOCUMENT EVERYTHING!!

This can not be overstated!

RECORD EVERY CONVERSATION, EVERY TELEPHONE CALL AND SAVE EVERY EMAIL, LETTER OR ANY OTHER FORM OF COMMUNICATION!!!

 

Save all of your information in an easily accessible but secure file.

 

North Carolina is a “one-party consent” state.  If one party consents to recording a conversation (that could be you!), it’s legal to do so.

If you consent to the conversation that you are engaged in, it is legal to record it without notifying the other party!

 

Many practitioners feel that the NCPHP is unfair in its treatment of licensed practitioners.  There is another option; Joseph Jordan PhD, the Clinical Director of the NCPHP is not a physician.  The NC Board of Licensed Professional Counselors licenses Dr. Jordan. 

 

Filing a complaint with the NCPHP to the NCMB is pointless.

 

Filing a complaint with the NCBLPC about the way the NCPHP Clinical Director operates the NCPHP is a very viable alternative.

 

If a complaint is filed with the NCLPC, review the American Counseling Association Ethics Codes and refer them to relate how each was violated in your complaint.  Be thorough & precise.

 

Now; Who would handle complaints about the “Big 3”?

 

1.

The Governor;

The office of the Governor is ultimately responsible for the affairs of the State.  “The Buck Stops Here!”

 

2.

Your local representatives (Senate & House).

 

3.

A complaint to the US Office of Civil Rights (OCR).  Typically, these complaints must be made within 6 months of any violation, but this rule is not cast in stone.  Explanations by the violated licensee of the fact that an attorney or numerous attorneys were contacted, state authorities were contacted (if applicable) without anybody from whom assistance on the matters recommended contacting the OCR or how to do so.  The web based complaint system is simple to complete.

 

4.

Public corruption is the top priority among FBI criminal investigations—and for good reason.  Corruption of public officials, either elected or appointed drastically affects the entire populace.  That is why It’s their #1 Criminal Priority according to their website.  Since the NC State Bureau of Investigation, Attorney General, Auditor, & Governor’s office refuse to get involved in the issues regarding the NCMB & NCPHP, the authors of this site suggest that those who have been subjected to illegal activity at the hands of the agencies contact;

 

Charlotte FBI Field Office

Special Agent John A. Strong

7915 Microsoft Way

Charlotte NC 28273

Phone: (704) 672-6100
Fax: (704) 672-6595
E-mail: 
Charlotte.public@ic.fbi.gov

 

The FBI does not accept appointments, phone & Email does not seem effective.  The best approach is to visit the facility with copies of pertinent paperwork; electronic devices including cell phones are not allowed into their huge and highly secure facility.

 

5.

The Wake County District Attorney. http://www.wakegov.com/districtattorney/Pages/default.aspx

The actions of the “Big 3” are criminal. 

They are located in Wake County. 

The District Attorney prosecutes criminal activity.

 

6.

NC State Auditor Beth Wood Beth_Wood@ncauditor.net.

The NCOSA is charged with evaluating state programs to ensure that they operate properly and efficiently

The NCOSA is also responsible for identifying any illegal activity in state agencies.
