New Jersey's chief law officer says he wasn't told a state board was given a repeat sex offender his license back– and desires that choice undone.
“There is no other way a hazardous, convicted kid sexual predator need to ever be enabled to work as a doctor in our state, and certainly no other way that a choice to re-license such an individual as a chiropractic doctor needs to ever be made in trick, without the input of his victims or my office,” Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, the state's top law enforcement officer, stated in a declaration.
Grewal, in a filing this week, stated the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners reinstated Bryan K. Bajakian's license despite his admission of not simply luring multiple minors over the internet, however of formerly continuing to deal with minors without board-ordered supervision.
Bajakian undergoes parole guidance for life. In 2010, his license was withdrawed after he was found guilty of tempting minors through telephone and Internet conversations, to misbehavior with an underage client, to having kid pornography and that he “taken part in sexual misconduct that would hinder or debauch the morals of six children,” according to Grewal's filing.
However the board gave back Bajakian's license after he got a low-risk score on a psychosexual assessment that Grewal argues was deeply unreliable. The doctor didn't assess documents of Bajakian's prior criminal offenses, and Bajakian never appeared prior to the board last year to show he's of good ethical character or rehabilitated, Grewal's filing states.
The AG also noted state law would permit the 2010 cancellation to be permanent.
“Simply put, this was wrong. The risk to the general public of permitting (Bajakian) to restore his license is too great.”
Grewal, in his declaration on the matter, kept in mind that previously this year he got in touch with professional licensing boards to re-examine how they deal with disciplinary choices. He advised victims be sought advice from prior to decisions are made.
