Woman wanted for posing as school nurse arrested

LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a woman wanted for posing as a nurse at a Searcy elementary school has been arrested and will face a seven-count indictment.

Authorities learned in July 2012 that Susan Elaine Boyce of Pleasant Plains, who had worked as a nurse at Sidney Deener Elementary School, did not have a nursing license.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Jerome T. Kearney on Thursday ordered Boyce held without bond, though Boyce’s lawyer said she may ask later for a bond hearing.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Angela Jegley told the judge that Boyce was a flight risk and posed a risk to the community.

The 59-year-old Boyce faces a variety of charges, including wire fraud, aggravated identity theft and misuse of a Social Security number.
