Wagswoofs – A registered nurse from Michigan has had her license permanently revoked after being found guilty of murder.
In November, the Michigan Board of Nursing Disciplinary Subcommittee made the decision to permanently revoke Judith Sobol’s registered nursing license. The 43-year-old nurse, who was previously residing in South Haven, had been convicted of second-degree murder in the tragic death of a 3-year-old patient under her care. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel shared this information.
Sobol faced charges last year for the death of the girl in June 2022. She was accused of second-degree murder and possession of methamphetamines/ecstasy. It was alleged that she had consumed meth prior to starting her overnight nursing shift at a Berrien County home, where she was responsible for the care of the child who relied on a ventilator.
In the early morning, the parents found Sobol incoherent and their daughter unresponsive. They discovered that her trachea tube had become disconnected. Despite their efforts to resuscitate her, the girl tragically passed away.
Attorney General Nessel expressed her condolences to the family of the victim, acknowledging the tragedy of the murder. She emphasized that in addition to the lengthy prison sentence, Sobol will never be allowed to practice healthcare again. Nessel also stressed the importance of protecting the integrity of the medical profession and ensuring the safety of patients, stating that no family should have to endure such a horrific experience at the hands of a healthcare professional.
