Former midwife Rosanna Walker had her probation revoked Thursday by San Diego Superior Court Judge Kenneth Johns for failing to make about $1,700 in restitution payments.

After an infant died following delivery by Walker on March 16, 1982, the Spring Valley woman pleaded guilty to practicing medicine without a license. An involuntary manslaughter charge involving the death of Devin Deutsch was dropped. When sentenced on Feb. 17, 1984, Walker was placed on three years’ probation, fined $500, and ordered to pay $1,848.28 to Reena Deutsch, the baby’s mother.

Johns ruled Walker, 35, had failed to make restitution and failed to keep in touch with her probation officer. Sentencing was set for Jan. 7. Walker could be sentenced to jail, although she has not served any time previously.

Walker is now working as a nurse in Valley Center. Under her probation, she is barred from practicing midwifery.
