JUNE 11, 2013 - The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) has immediately suspended the license to practice as a physician's assistant of John Eric Roberts, P.A., of Mount Pleasant, Michigan based on his conviction in the United States District Court, Western District of Michigan. 

On October 17, 2012, Roberts was convicted of Conspiracy to Pay and Receive Health Care Kickbacks.  Roberts was sentenced to four months in prison, followed by two years of supervised release with terms including community service and participation in mental health treatment along with restitution in the amount of $70,000.00.

On June 5, 2013, LARA issued an order summarily suspending Roberts' 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, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for a maximum term of two years, or a controlled substance-related conviction.
