Counselor to Oregon family accused in suit of planting false memories during sessions
A former Albany, Ore., resident is suing a family counselor and accusing him of planting false memories during counseling sessions.
The Albany Democrat-Herald reports the suit seeks $1.5 million in relief.
Stephan Skotko filed the suit against the counselor, Marion Knox, and his wife in August, and increased the damages sought this week.
Skotko says, during counseling sessions eight years ago, Knox implanted false memories in his mind and the minds of his wife and teenage children.
