Children Are In Danger On-Line

Cyber Safety

The proliferation of child predators using the Internet to target young victims has become a national crisis.  A study shows one in seven children will be solicited for sex online in the next year.

The Texas Attorney General is urging all parents and teachers to realize the risks our children face online, and take steps to help ensure their children’s safety.

Internet Chase Video

So why are some teens so trusting of people they meet online?  For many students there is a sense that what happens online can’t hurt them.  Unfortunately, we are finding that many teens are posting personal information in chat rooms and on social networking sites making them easy prey for child predators.

In this video, provided from the I-Safe curriculum, you can see what happens when one student finds out the hard way that you can’t trust what people tell you online. Click the image to watch the video.

If for any reason you fear any one, or have any doubts about your safety, contact Law Enforcement immediately.

Doctor Charged With Child Sexual Assault, Meth Possession

Physician’s license suspended

The Texas Medical Board has suspended the license of a North Texas physician after his arrest on charges of child sex assault and drug possession.

Timothy Morris Collins, 53, of Arlington was booked into the Tarrant County jail Oct. 30 on two counts of sexual assault of a child and one count of possession of 1 to 4 grams of a controlled substance.  He posted $52,500 bond the following day, court records show.

A disciplinary panel of the state’s medical board temporarily suspended his license without notice Thursday “after determining his continuation in the practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare,” the board said in a written statement.

Collins, who specializes in family medicine, has been licensed since 1995.  According to the board and his LinkedIn profile, he practices at Plano-based North Texas Medical Specialists.

Court records indicate that the incidents that led to the sexual assault charges took place in 1995 and 2012.  Police have not released any additional information about those charges.

A criminal complaint for the drug charge says Collins was in possession of methamphetamine Oct. 29.

Collins was arrested in 2016 on a drug-possession charge after authorities said he had meth, but a Tarrant County grand jury opted not to indict him.

The state medical board has twice taken disciplinary action against him in the past.

In 2011, the board found Collins had failed to keep accurate records about his purchases and disposal of controlled substances and ordered him to take continuing medical education and pay a $1,000 fine.

Three years later, the board found that Collins had solicited a patient for financial help, kept medical records that didn’t support multiple patients’ prescriptions to controlled substances and didn’t cooperate with the board.

In lieu of suspending his license, the board put Collins on a probationary period that included a public reprimand, oversight of his practice by another physician and the requirement that he reapply to the Drug Enforcement Admin-istration and Texas Department of Public Safety to be able to prescribe controlled substances.
