This petition made change with 590 supporters!


You are urged to sign this petition to Governor Pence (Indiana) requesting/demanding that he step in to stop the harassment of the nurse practitioners, Kathy Lynch and Karen Dunning, from the Kouts Health Care, by having the Porter County Prosecutor, Brian Gensel, drop all charges against them.

Many of the already public reasons are listed below:

--While the Porter County Prosecutor’s office has charged the Kouts Health Care’s nurse practitioners, Kathy Lynch and Karen Dunning, with medication felonies there are at least 16 other nurse practitioners in the area following the same protocol.

--That the Porter County Prosecutor has charged both Kathy Lynch (Purdue NP Program grad, 1989) and Karen Dunning (VU NP Program grad, 1998) with having no licenses to practice (NP) in the state of Indiana.  They have been practicing NPs ever since while continuing with  further education.

--That the Kouts' NPs have taken a stand against DEA agents, Kathy Franko, Scott Nowland and DEA Supervisor, Drew Adams (Deputy Attorney General for Indiana) and other agents in Indiana for their harassment against other nurse practitioners in the state of Indiana.  Now they are being punished.

--That these agents (Drew Adams (Deputy Attorney General), Kathy Franko and Scott Nowland) do NOT know the licensing requirements for Nurse Practitioners in the state of Indiana. 

--That on July 1, 2015, Indiana House Bill 1183 became effective, allowing Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners to freely use the same medical protocol mentioned above without repercussions.

--That the old law on the books being used by the DEA was written for doctors.  Nurse practitioners did even not exist then.  Most of the laws have been corrected to reflect this.

--That nearly 20,000 patients from the Kouts Health Care have gone untreated since February 19 due to these charges being filed.  (Many are elderly and refuse to be treated by any other medical personnel.)

--That only one member of the Indiana State Board of Nursing is a Nurse Practitioner and the entire board was unfamiliar with the state’s changes of the drug laws in 2014.

--That the local DEA/Prosecutor has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of your money to pursue these unfounded charges.

--That the lead DEA agent told one of the Kouts Health Care Nps that “no one tells me NO” with his finger waving.    Thus it all began.

By signing this petition you can help bring an end to this unfair harassment by the Porter County Prosecutor’s office by demanding all charges against Kathy Lynch and Karen Dunning be dismissed.

Help Kathy Lynch and Karen Dunning get back to caring for their patients! Your life could be at risk...help them help others!!
