The Department of State's Disciplinary Actions: November 2020

by PAN

Two notaries from two counties were disciplined by the Department of State for violations against the notary public law.

Allegheny County

A notary in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, was suspended for six months, immediately stayed in favor of probation; levied a civil penalty of $500; a probation assessment of $300; and must complete six hours of remedial education because she failed to know through personal knowledge or satisfactory evidence that the person appearing before her was the person described in and who was executing the instrument by failing to require a personal appearance, failed to keep and maintain custody and control of an accurate chronological register of all official notarial acts performed, failed to be familiar with the duties and responsibilities of a notary public, and failed to be of good character, integrity and ability.

Montgomery County

A notary in Norristown, Montgomery County was suspended for twelve months, immediately stayed in favor of probation; levied an administrative penalty of $500; a probation assessment of $600; and must complete six hours of remedial education because she failed to be of good character, integrity and ability by being convicted of a felony or an offense involving fraud, dishonesty or deceit, or by pleading guilty to Theft by Deception False Impression, a third-degree felony.
