On April 9, 2013, Murphy was convicted of Operating While Intoxicated – 3rd Offense, a felony. Murphy was sentenced 183 days in jail (with credit for two days), to be followed by probation for a period of three years with terms, and ordered to pay fines and costs.
On July 25, 2013, LARA issued an order summarily suspending Murphy’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, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for a maximum term of two years, or a controlled substance-related conviction.
