EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The Evansville psychologist, charged with falsifying records in criminal court cases, took a plea deal.
The Vanderburgh County Prosecutor's office tells 14 News, Doctor Albert Fink pleaded guilty to a felony obstruction of justice charge. We are told the theft charge was dropped.
Fink was a court appointed doctor for hundreds of cases across Indiana.
