State Suspends Two Nurses' License After Crimes

Posted: Updated:

The state suspended the licenses of two mid-Michigan nurses after officials say the pair ran into trouble with the law.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs suspended the license of George Adatsi of Lansing after officials there say he pleaded guilty to a crime in federal court last September.

A federal judge sentenced Adatsi to 18 months in prison and one year of "supervised release" after he pleaded guilty to felony tax laws. He'll also have to pay fines adding up to more than $200,000.

The state, following the law, suspended his license last week suspending his nurse's license because of his felony conviction.

The same law applies to Johnny Dean Johnson, a nurse from Litchfield - which is in Hillsdale County.

State officials say Johnson was convicted of larceny and drug possessions charges back in November. A judge sentenced him to 180 days in jail and two years of probation.

Michigan law also requires the state agency to suspend the license of someone convicted of a drug-related crime.
