On August 13, 2013, the Idaho Board of Social Work Examiners revoked the license of social worker Ken Curtis.
The Board’s document states that Curtis was employed by the state Department of Correction (DoC) as a counselor at a male facility.
In June 2013, the Board received a complaint alleging that a female offender under the custody of DoC, as part of her programming prior to release, disclosed that prior to her incarceration, she’d earned her living as a prostitute.
In working to turn her life around, she wrote letters to her former clients expressly to end the relationships and disclosed to staff that Curtis was one of her former clients. She also disclosed that she had concerns for her family’s safety as she alleged that Curtis had threatened her elderly grandmother.
Curtis surrendered his license but consented to allowing the Board to revoke it as part of its discipline.
