A state board Thursday reinstated the chiropractic doctor license of a founded guilty sex transgressor after
turning down a movement by the attorney general of the United States's office to deny the request. The Board of Chiropractic Examiners filed an authorization order late Thursday to restore the license of Bryan K. Bajakian, 61, who practiced in Paramus prior to he was convicted on luring and firearms charges in 2008. The five board members who existed voted all, but did not make any discuss the choice. The move was opposed by state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who submitted a motion in November asking the board to reverse its earlier decision to restore Bajakian's license. Grewal argued that the board's vote to give back the license was based upon a flawed psychosexual report and said Bajakian's victims and other stakeholders were not alerted. On Thursday, the attorney general's office said it would evaluate the board's decision prior to determining whether it would take further action.”There is no other way an unsafe, founded guilty kid sexual predator need to ever be permitted to work as a doctor in our state, and definitely no way that a decision to re-license such a private as a chiropractic physician ought to ever be made in secret, without the input of his victims or my workplace,”Grewal said in November in an uncommon declaration questioning a choice from among New Jersey's independent licensing boards.”We will do everything we can to prevent this Megan's Law transgressor and others from going back to practice,”Grewal included. During the Thursday conference, Deputy Attorney General Nisha Lakhani argued that the doctor who performed the psychosexual report did not have a complete accounting of Bajakian
‘s past and that the board could reject the reinstatement based upon a conclusion that he “lacks excellent moral character.” Bajakian's lawyer, Douglas Anton, disagreed, saying the board made its choice with full understanding of Bajakian's record and he argued that the state had actually not presented any new proof versus his customer. Anton informed the board that the attorney general's action was “to bully you and pressure you,” calling the case “a disgrace.
“”The Attorney General's Office is devoted
to rooting out sexual misconduct in all its kinds, and has actually constantly gotten in touch with the state's expert licensing boards to take seriously their responsibility to secure members of the public from sexual misbehavior by licensees,”a spokesperson stated.” In light of the egregious realities of this case, we are dissatisfied that the Board of Chiropractic Examiners has actually enabled Bryan Bajakian to resume practice, and are evaluating the Board's choice.” Bajakian's attorney stated he was pleased with the decision, and he was crucial of what he called”external pressure by those officials in power to press these board members to change their well grounded and resolved viewpoint.”

The license is subject to probation for 5 years.
He stated Bajakian plans to begin practicing instantly and he has three offers for employment, however they need to”submit needed compliance files such as insurance, and so on tomorrow and take it day by day.” Bajakian intends to open his own shop once again, Anton stated.
“Several clients have been waiting years, “Anton stated. “We have been waiting on this for years. He is ready. He starts immediately.” Bajakian was first implicated in 2005 with attempting to entice a child, according to a document from the Division of Consumer Affairs and the chief law officer's office purchasing him not to see clients more youthful than 18 without guidance.
In 2008, according to court and jail records, Bajakian was convicted in Superior Court of tempting and guns charges in 2008. In the motion submitted by Grewal's office in November, Bajakian likewise”engaged in sexual misconduct toward an underage client “and is on lifetime parole. The Board of Chiropractors temporarily suspended his license in 2008 and his license was revoked in 2010. The board found he had actually tried to meet children on the internet for sex, kept child porn and continued to see patients younger than 18 without supervision, according to the decision stripping him of his license.
The board rejected Bajakian's request to have his license renewed in 2018, but they voted unanimously on Oct. 24, 2019, to offer the license back, Grewal stated.
Bajakian went to jail again in 2016 on a parole offense and was launched from Southern State Correctional Facility in 2017, according to jail records.
Bajakian is listed as a registered sex transgressor in Florida, where the website says “sex offense, other state (2 counts attempting to entice or attract a kid).”
After the reinstatement choice on Thursday, Vitale and
Singer excoriated the board's choice.”This is a decision that defies common sense and overlooks the security of the public the board is accountable for protecting. Anyone who believes it's a good idea to restore the license of a founded guilty sex transgressor who preyed on kids can't be depended exercise their oversight obligations, or to even to hearken their own objective declaration directing the board to ‘secure the health, safety and well-being of individuals of New Jersey,'” they said. “Bryan Bajakian is a predator who should not be put in a position of trust with patients in healthcare settings that make them vulnerable, particularly kids. Rejecting him a license must be automatic, as it is in other states.”
