HARRISBURG – The Department of State took disciplinary actions against 120 licensed or commissioned professionals and organizations during March, said Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele.
In Clearfield County, two people were disciplined:
- Candice J. Alvetro, (notary) of Dubois, Clearfield County, agreed to the permanent and voluntary surrender of her notary commission because she pled guilty to a felony or lesser offense incompatible with the duties of a notary public, is not familiar with the duties and responsibilities of a notary public, and failed to be of good character, integrity and ability.
- Jill M. Butler, (nurse) of Clearfield, Clearfield County was revoked because she pled guilty to a crime of moral turpitude in the courts of the Commonwealth.
