Senate panel to consider measures to revoke licenses of doctors convicted of rape

WHO: Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee; other members of the committee; and interested parties.

WHAT: Committee hearing on Senate Bills 234, 235 and 236.

WHEN: Tuesday, May 17
 2:30 p.m.

WHERE: Farnum Building
 Room 110
 125 W. Allegan St., Lansing
BRIEF: Under SBs 234, SB 235 and SB 236, health care professionals convicted of Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC) 1, 2 or 3 could be sanctioned or have their licenses revoked. The measures would also ensure that health care professionals with a license or registration permanently revoked for a CSC violation are ineligible for reinstatement.

The proposals were sponsored following the revelation that a Farmington Hills dentist, Donald Quinn, had his license renewed following a conviction of rape and other CSC violations.
One of Quinn’s victims will testify before the panel. To protect her privacy, Jones respectfully requests that no pictures or film be taken of her face.
