The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the pharmacist license of Stanley J. Wieczorek, R.Ph., based on his misdemeanor conviction in the United States District Court, Eastern District of Michigan. Wieczorek failed to report his conviction to MDCH as required by the Public Health Code.

On February 25, 2005, Wieczorek was convicted of Illegal Possession of Schedule III Controlled Substances, a misdemeanor. As a result, Wieczorek was sentenced to probation for 12 months with terms, assessed costs in the amount of $25.00, and ordered to pay a fine in the amount of $5,000.00.

On March 31, 2005, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Wieczorek’s license 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 or a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for a maximum of two years or a misdemeanor involving the illegal delivery, possession or use of a controlled substance.

An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Wieczorek’s pharmacist license. For more information on disciplinary actions taken by the health professional licensing boards within MDCH, please go to http://www.michigan.gov/mdch, and click on Health Systems and Licensing.
