The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the nursing license of Carter Akinyemi Akinruli, L.P.N., due to his felony convictions in the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court, Oakland County, Michigan.

Akinruli failed to reports his convictions to MDCH as required by the Public Health Code. On November 10, 2003, Akinruli was convicted of Armed Robbery, First Degree Home Invasion, Felonious Assault, and three counts of Weapons-Felony Firearm.

Akinruli was sentenced to incarceration for a minimum of two years for the Weapons–Felony Firearm convictions. Akinruli was sentenced to a minimum of 68 months of incarceration for the other convictions, to be served consecutive to his original two-year prison term

On March 19, 2004, MDCH issued an order summarily suspending Akinruli’s license pursuant to the Public Health Code, which provides for the mandatory summary suspension of a health professional upon the conviction of a felony. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Akinruli’s licensed practical nurse license.
