HAMPTON, Iowa – A North Iowa occupational therapist is having her license suspended until the criminal charges against her are resolved.

Samantha Jo Rogers, 32 of Mason City, has made an agreement with the Iowa Board of Physical & Occupational Therapy where she will not provide therapy to anyone and the Board will not pursue disciplinary action while charges remain in place against her.

Rogers was indicted in federal court in October with conspiracy to possess a controlled substance, violating medical privacy laws, and aiding and abetting. Authorities say Rogers illegally accessed information about patients where she worked and tried to use that information to get drugs from those patients.

Rogers is also charged in Franklin County with 3rd degree burglary. She’s accused of prying open a door and entered a Hampton residence on July 1, 2018. Investigators say $20 was found missing from a wallet inside. Rogers is pleading not guilty and her trial is scheduled to start on December 13.
