The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the certified social worker registration and the social worker registration of Tracey Ann Monroe, C.S.W., S.W., based on her felony convictions in the 31st Judicial Circuit Court of St. Clair County, Michigan. Monroe failed to report her convictions to MDCH as required by the Public Health Code.

On October 20, 2004, Monroe was convicted of four felony offenses, which included, Attempted Larceny from the Person, Attempted Robbery-Unarmed, Larceny from the Person, and Larceny in a Building. As a result, Monroe was sentenced to jail for a period of 365 days with 16 days credit, placed on probation for two years and ordered to pay fines, costs and restitution in the amount of $2,752.64.

On January 28, 2005, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Monroe’s registrations pursuant to the Public Health Code, which provides for the mandatory summary suspension of a health professional’s license upon the conviction of a felony.

An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Monroe’s certified social work registration and social worker registration.
