A Lauderdale County judge issued a warrant for the arrest of a woman accused of faking credentials and working as a counselor in child custody cases. 

We began investigating Angel Gieske after a tip from a viewer in the Shoals.

Angel Gieske claimed she received a doctorate in rehabilitation behavioral analysis and therapy from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. 

WAFF contacted the university; in a short statement, officials verified that "Gieske never attended the university and therefore does not have a degree of any kind from the institution."

We also confirmed Gieske was fined in Tennessee for posing and practicing as a psychologist for two years. Gieske now faces charges in Lauderdale County and Walker County.

She did not show for her arraignment in Lauderdale County, prompting the judge to issue the warrant. 

Gieske is scheduled to go to trial next week in Walker County.
