Psychologist in King Co. suspended for 10 years due to attempt to engage in sex with a minor
OLYMPIA -- The license of King County psychologist, Jonathan B. Wulf (PSYC.PY.00002329) has been suspended for 10 years by state health officials.
The final order suspending his license completes the legal process that started on November 12, 2015, with the immediate suspension of his license. Wulf has no right to apply for reinstatement of his psychology license in Washington for at least 10 years.
Wulf was charged in federal court in September 2015 with attempted enticement of a minor, for the knowing attempt to persuade, induce, entice, and coerce a minor to engage in sexual activity. Between September 8 and September 22, 2015, Wulf allegedly initiated conversations over the Internet and by phone with an undercover federal investigator, and expressed his desire to meet and have sexual intercourse with a minor female.
