Michigan legislators push to bar licenses for convicted healthcare workers

Detroit Free Press, February 26, 2009

A former Farmington Hills, MI, dentist OK'd to resume his practice despite a 2002 conviction for sexually assaulting a patient is the target of legislation to bar license reinstatement for healthcare professionals convicted of sex crimes. State Rep. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, who is one of the ban's sponsors, told the Detroit Free Press giving a convicted sexual predator renewed access to patients and potential victims is "outrageous ... horrendous. It shouldn't be allowed to happen."
