PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A psychologist accused of running a prostitution business out of his New Hampshire apartment has agreed not to treat or see patients.

Alexander Marino, who practiced in Exeter, signed a preliminary agreement to the restrictions on Monday. His license has been temporarily suspended.

The agreement is in effect until the state Board of Mental Health approves his return to practice. The agreement does not admit to any violations.

Marino was arrested earlier this month on charges that he knowingly allowed his Portsmouth apartment to be used for prostitution and benefited financially from it. He also was charged with marijuana possession.
