Woman accused of posing as nurse charged in Marion County

INDIANAPOLIS — A McCordsville woman charged in July with practicing nursing without a license in Hancock County now faces similar allegations in Marion County.

Ashley Trent, a former employee of Developmental Service Alternatives, offered care to people with disabilities despite never having completed nursing school, local prosecutors said when charging her with 11 felonies early this summer.

The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office is pursuing four misdemeanor charges related to DSA clients from the Indianapolis area, according to court documents.
