LARA permanently revokes Nassar's medical license

ABC 57 NEWS – The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs’ (LARA) Michigan Board of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery has permanently revoked the license of Larry Nassar and fined the licensee $1 million on April 5. The fine issued is the largest fine on record in the history of the department.

The fine was an accumulation of four $250,000 fines cited for violations of the Public Health Code. The fine is to be paid to the State of Michigan after all restitution, criminal fees, and civil judgments Nassar receives have been satisfied.

The permanent revocation resulted from Nassar’s convictions which were outlined in January of this year as administrative complaint.

Prior to the permanent revocation, Nassar’s license was revoked by the board on April 25 of 2017 due to LARA’s order summarily suspending Nassar’s license following an administrative complaint from January of 2017.

Nassar has been convicted of multiple crimes in multiple jurisdictions over the last two years, but most recently on February 5, 2018, Nassar was convicted of three counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct in the First Degree in Eaton County Circuit Court.
