New Jersey's chief law officer says he wasn't told a state board was offered a repeat sex offender his license back– and desires that decision reversed.
“There is no chance an unsafe, founded guilty kid sexual predator should ever be permitted to work as a doctor in our state, and definitely no way that a decision to re-license such a specific as a chiropractic physician must ever be made in secret, without the input of his victims or my workplace,” Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, the state's top law enforcement officer, said in a statement.
Grewal, in a filing this week, stated the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners renewed Bryan K. Bajakian's license despite his admission of not simply drawing numerous minors over the internet, but of formerly continuing to treat minors without board-ordered guidance.
Bajakian goes through parole guidance for life. In 2010, his license was withdrawed after he was found guilty of drawing minors through telephone and Internet discussions, to misconduct with a minor client, to having child pornography which he “participated in sexual misconduct that would impair or debauch the morals of six children,” according to Grewal's filing.
But the board gave back Bajakian's license after he got a low-risk score on a psychosexual evaluation that Grewal argues was deeply unreliable. The doctor didn't evaluate documentation of Bajakian's previous criminal activities, and Bajakian never appeared prior to the board in 2015 to demonstrate he's of great moral character or restored, Grewal's filing states.
The AG likewise kept in mind state law would allow the 2010 revocation to be irreversible.
“Simply put, this was wrong. The danger to the general public of allowing (Bajakian) to regain his license is too great.”
Grewal, in his statement on the matter, noted that previously this year he got in touch with professional licensing boards to re-examine how they manage disciplinary choices. He urged victims be spoken with prior to decisions are made.
NorthJersey.com reportsBajakian was as soon as called “Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde” by a Superior Court Judge. According to the report, in 2009 he was sentenced to 5 years in jail for trying to lure underage ladies, and for sending them nude photos of himself. It stated he had a “vast library” of kid porn on his computer system, depicting children from ages 4 to 12. The report draws on USA Today network records.
Bajakian didn't show up to satisfy the minors he engaged with, the report states. It recalls his defense arguing at trial Bajakian was calling minors to investigate a book on sexuality on the web– an argument the judge didn't discover reputable.
Prior to that, he ‘d been caught in 2004 in an undercover sting, where authorities found evidence of an attempted meet-up with a teenager, the report says. He eventually pleaded guilty to drawing a weapons offense.
A website appearing to advertise his present consulting services states Bajakian “has led an exemplary life,” describing an effective academic and scholastic sports career. It also cites participation with neighborhood groups and charities, consisting of Toys for Tots and St. Jude's Children Hospital.
“Up till his last days of active practice, Dr. Bryan Bajakian continued to provide his expert and personal best to those who were in requirement,” the site states. “Currently, he seeks advice from other physicians on how to effectively inform their clients and how to effectively handle their practices.”
