The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the pharmacist license of Gordon Bernard Kilmer, R.Ph., based on his misdemeanor conviction in the 49th Judicial Circuit Court, Osceola County, Michigan. Kilmer failed to report his conviction to MDCH as required by the Public Health Code.

On January 31, 2005, Kilmer was convicted of Criminal Sexual Conduct-Fourth Degree (Incapacitated Victim), a misdemeanor. As a result, Kilmer was sentenced to six months on a tether, placed on probation for 36 months with terms and ordered to pay fines and costs totaling $1,120.00.

On June 14, 2005, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Kilmer’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 misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for a maximum term of two years. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Kilmer’s pharmacist license.
