September 7, 2018 – The Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) served an order summarily suspending the massage therapy license of Nathan Isaiah Weems of Shelby Township for criminal sexual conduct.
On August 13, Weems pled guilty to two counts of third-degree and six counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct in 16th Circuit Court in Macomb County.
The Michigan Public Health Code provides for summary suspension of licenses when the public health, safety, or welfare requires emergency action.
LARA also served an accompanying administrative complaint against Weems detailing criminal sexual conduct with two clients.
An order of summary suspension is a temporary measure to protect the public and not a final determination that a licensee has violated the Public Health Code.
LARA encourages all concerned residents, patients, parents and peers to file complaints against health professionals who may allegedly be risking public health, safety or welfare. LARA values and relies on complaints from patients and residents to spur investigations into licensed health professionals who are potentially violating the Public Health Code. Each and every complaint received by the department is reviewed and analyzed by professional licensing staff.
