Correction: Medical Board votes not to suspend doctor’s license after Deputy Attorney General’s request
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - We have a correction to story we aired and published Friday.
We reported the Indiana Medical Licensing Board has suspended Dr. James Jenison’s license.
Documents show the Deputy Attorney General asked the Board to suspend his license for 90 days.
He tells us late last month, the board voted not to suspend Dr. Jenison’s license on an emergency basis.
“We filed a petition for summary suspension against Dr. Jenison in April with the Medical Licensing Board. The petition alleged that Dr. Jenison had been prescribing controlled substances for months without a valid controlled substances registration. We also had concerns with some of the answers Dr. Jenison put on his application to renew his controlled substances registration (He renewed when he became aware it was expired.). That’s all contained in the petition itself, which is a public document.
The Medical Licensing Board held a hearing on April 28, 2022. At that time the Board voted not to suspend Dr. Jenison’s license on an emergency basis. It can take up to ninety days for orders to be issued following a hearing, so that’s why there’s nothing available yet. It’s worth noting that there is still a pending administrative complaint against Dr. Jenison for unrelated issues,” said Press Secretary Kelly Stevenson.
