The state has suspended the nursing credential of a King County woman after she was convicted of several crimes, the Department of Health announced this afternoon.

Sabelita Hawkins first had her license suspended in July after being convicted of fourth-degree assault, felony harassment and malicious mischief. Charging documents show she repeatedly stabbed her mother with an 8-inch knife and assaulted a co-worker while on duty.

“Hawkins reported she’d experienced other psychotic episodes in the past,” a Health Department news release said.

To get her license back, she must complete a psychological assessment.

It’s unclear where Hawkins worked.
