PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — The New Hampshire Board of Mental Health has temporarily suspended the license of a psychologist who’s been accused of running a prostitution business out of his Portsmouth apartment.

The board has scheduled a court hearing for Alexander Marino on Aug. 27 in Concord on whether his behavior constitutes professional misconduct.

The order dated Friday suspends Marino’s license to practice in Exeter. He was arrested earlier this month on charges that he knowingly allowed his apartment to be used for prostitution and benefited financially from it. He also was charged with marijuana possession.

It is unknown if Marino has a lawyer. A message left at his office number wasn’t immediately returned Monday afternoon.
