According to the Probable Cause Statement, between the dates of August 1 and August 26, 2022, Sara M. Adams, 43, allegedly knowingly and with the intent to deceive or defraud the North Shelby School District, applied for the nurse’s position using the nurse’s license number which belonged to another Sara M. Adams and was not lawfully issued for her use.
Adams allegedly possessed and presented to North Shelby for the purpose of using as genuine the nurse’s license number of another, to get hired as the school’s nurse and signing a contract for $35,000.
According to court documents, employee of the Missouri State Board of Nursing stated that there is no such license nor applicant for a license with the name of Sara M. Adams that matches Adams’s date of birth or social security number. Adams is not licensed nor never been licensed as a nurse by the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
