PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A Portland social worker accused of engaging in an inappropriate sexual relationship with a client will no longer practice while the criminal case against him is pending.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/29SXHLh ) 51-year-old Kelly O’Rourke entered into a consent agreement with the Maine State Board of Social Worker Licensure on Monday that prevents him from continuing his practice.

O’Rourke was arrested and charged with felony gross sexual assault on July 1. His arrest came six months after the victim filed a complaint with the licensing board.

Rob Andrews, O’Rourke’s attorney, says the consent agreement is not a sanction. Instead it bars O’Rourke from practicing while his case makes its way through the courts.
