Oceanside psychologist was accused of supplying contraband to inmates

SACRAMENTO –A San Diego-area psychologist has agreed to surrender his license after he was accused of supplying contraband to incarcerated patients.

The California Board of Psychology filed an accusation against licensed psychologist Jeremy Trimble last December while he worked as a contract psychologist at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego. The accusation against Dr. Trimble alleged gross negligence and dishonest, corrupt, or fraudulent acts of supplying contraband to inmate patients.

In its accusation, the board sought to revoke or suspend Dr. Trimble's license. Trimble chose to resolve the accusation against his license by agreeing to surrender his license to the board effective March 29, 2018, and waiving his rights to a hearing.
