A state board Thursday restored the chiropractic doctor license of a convicted sex transgressor after
refusing a movement by the attorney general of the United States's workplace to deny the demand. The Board of Chiropractic Examiners submitted a permission order late Thursday to reinstate the license of Bryan K. Bajakian, 61, who practiced in Paramus prior to he was convicted on tempting and firearms charges in 2008. The five board members who were present voted all, however did not make any discuss the decision. 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 on a problematic psychosexual report and stated Bajakian's victims and other stakeholders were not alerted. On Thursday, the attorney general's office stated it would evaluate the board's decision prior to figuring out whether it would take further action.”There is no way an unsafe, convicted kid sexual predator ought to ever be allowed to work as a doctor in our state, and definitely no other way that a decision to re-license such a specific as a chiropractic physician must ever be made in trick, without the input of his victims or my office,”Grewal stated in November in an unusual statement questioning a choice from one of New Jersey's independent licensing boards.”We will do whatever we can to prevent this Megan's Law offender and others from going back to practice,”Grewal included. During the Thursday meeting, Deputy Attorney General Nisha Lakhani argued that the physician who performed the psychosexual report did not have a complete accounting of Bajakian
‘s past and that the board might reject the reinstatement based upon a conclusion that he “does not have good moral character.” Bajakian's attorney, Douglas Anton, disagreed, stating the board made its choice with complete understanding of Bajakian's record and he argued that the state had actually not provided any new evidence against 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 committed
to rooting out sexual misbehavior in all its types, and has continuously contacted the state's professional licensing boards to take seriously their obligation to secure members of the general public from sexual misbehavior by licensees,”a spokeswoman stated.” In light of the egregious realities of this case, we are disappointed that the Board of Chiropractic Examiners has actually enabled Bryan Bajakian to resume practice, and are reviewing the Board's decision.” Bajakian's lawyer stated he was pleased with the choice, and he was important of what he called”external pressure by those officials in power to pressure these board members to alter their well grounded and fixed opinion.”

The license is subject to probation for 5 years.
He said Bajakian prepares to begin practicing immediately and he has three offers for employment, however they require to”file needed compliance documents such as insurance, etc. tomorrow and take it day by day.” Bajakian means to open his own shop once again, Anton stated.
“Several clients have actually been waiting years, “Anton stated. “We have been waiting for this for years. He is prepared. He begins right away.” Bajakian was first implicated in 2005 with attempting to entice a kid, according to a document from the Division of Consumer Affairs and the chief law officer's office buying him not to see patients younger than 18 without guidance.
In 2008, according to court and prison records, Bajakian was convicted in Superior Court of luring and firearms charges in 2008. In the motion filed by Grewal's office in November, Bajakian also”participated in sexual misconduct toward an underage client “and is on life time parole. The Board of Chiropractors temporarily suspended his license in 2008 and his license was withdrawed in 2010. The board found he had actually tried to meet children on the internet for sex, kept child pornography and continued to see patients more youthful than 18 without supervision, according to the decision removing him of his license.
The board rejected Bajakian's request to have his license renewed in 2018, however they voted unanimously on Oct. 24, 2019, to offer the license back, Grewal said.
Bajakian went to prison once again in 2016 on a parole infraction and was launched from Southern State Correctional Facility in 2017, according to prison records.
Bajakian is noted as a signed up sex transgressor in Florida, where the site says “sex offense, other state (2 counts trying to tempt or attract a child).”
After the reinstatement decision on Thursday, Vitale and
Singer excoriated the board's decision.”This is a choice that defies good sense and overlooks the security of the public the board is responsible for securing. Anyone who thinks it's a great concept to reinstate the license of a founded guilty sex wrongdoer who took advantage of kids can't be depended exercise their oversight responsibilities, or to even to follow their own mission declaration directing the board to ‘protect the health, security and welfare of individuals of New Jersey,'” they said. “Bryan Bajakian is a predator who needs to not be positioned in a position of trust with patients in healthcare settings that make them vulnerable, specifically kids. Rejecting him a license must be automated, as it remains in other states.”
