The prison psychologist accused of faking a rape and robbery at her Northgate home is still working for the prison system, a corrections spokeswoman confirmed Friday.

Terry Thornton, spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, said Laurie Ann Martinez's superiors do not have the final reports needed to decide whether to put her on "administrative time off."

Martinez, 36, has been charged with two counts of felony criminal conspiracy in connection with a police report she made April 10. Sacramento police and prosecutors allege that, with the help of friend Nicole April Syder, Martinez injured herself and hid personal belongings before calling police to report that she had been raped and robbed.

She did it to persuade her husband to move to another neighborhood, police and prosecutors say.

Martinez is a senior supervising psychologist at California State Prison, Sacramento. Thornton said Martinez was moved to department headquarters in May after allegations of the false report emerged.

She still works there, despite the felony charges filed Nov. 30 and her arrest Monday.

"She is and has been working under direct supervision, she has no contact with patients, and her current work is not directly related to patient care," Thornton wrote in an email to The Bee.

Thornton said the department's internal affairs division is working with Sacramento police on the case and an administrative investigation also has been launched.

Martinez was released from jail after she posted $50,000 bond. Her alleged co-conspirator, 33-year-old Snyder, has not been arrested, though there is a warrant out for her arrest.
