A state board Thursday restored the chiropractic physician license of a founded guilty sex offender after
denying a motion by the attorney general of the United States's office to deny the request. The Board of Chiropractic Examiners submitted an authorization order late Thursday to renew the license of Bryan K. Bajakian, 61, who practiced in Paramus prior to he was founded guilty on luring and guns charges in 2008. The 5 board members who existed voted unanimously, however did not make any discuss the choice. The move was opposed by state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who submitted a movement in November asking the board to reverse its earlier choice to reinstate Bajakian's license. Grewal argued that the board's vote to return the license was based on a problematic psychosexual report and stated Bajakian's victims and other stakeholders were not alerted. On Thursday, the chief law officer's workplace said it would examine the board's decision before identifying whether it would take more action.”There is no chance a hazardous, founded guilty kid sexual predator must ever be allowed to work as a healthcare provider in our state, and certainly no other way that a choice to re-license such a private as a chiropractic specialist should ever be made in trick, without the input of his victims or my office,”Grewal stated in November in an unusual statement questioning a decision from one of New Jersey's independent licensing boards.”We will do whatever we can to prevent this Megan's Law offender and others from returning to practice,”Grewal included. During the Thursday conference, Deputy Attorney General Nisha Lakhani argued that the physician who carried out the psychosexual report did not have a complete accounting of Bajakian
‘s past and that the board could deny the reinstatement based upon a conclusion that he “does not have good ethical character.” Bajakian's lawyer, Douglas Anton, disagreed, stating the board made its choice with complete understanding of Bajakian's record and he argued that the state had actually not presented any new evidence against his client. Anton told the board that the chief law officer's action was “to bully you and pressure you,” calling the proceeding “a disgrace.
“”The Attorney General's Office is devoted
to rooting out sexual misbehavior in all its forms, and has actually constantly gotten in touch with the state's professional licensing boards to take seriously their obligation to safeguard members of the public from sexual misconduct by licensees,”a spokesperson said.” In light of the outright facts of this case, we are disappointed that the Board of Chiropractic Examiners has actually permitted Bryan Bajakian to resume practice, and are evaluating the Board's decision.” Bajakian's attorney said he was pleased with the decision, and he was crucial of what he called”external pressure by those officials in power to pressure these board members to change their well grounded and solved viewpoint.”

The license goes through probation for five years.
He said Bajakian plans to start practicing immediately and he has 3 deals for employment, however they need to”file essential compliance documents such as insurance coverage, etc. tomorrow and take it day by day.” Bajakian intends to open his own store again, Anton stated.
“Several clients have actually been waiting years, “Anton said. “We have been waiting on this for many years. He is prepared. He starts right away.” Bajakian was very first implicated in 2005 with trying to lure a child, according to a file from the Division of Consumer Affairs and the attorney general's workplace buying him not to see patients younger than 18 without supervision.
In 2008, according to court and jail records, Bajakian was convicted in Superior Court of luring and guns charges in 2008. In the motion submitted by Grewal's workplace in November, Bajakian likewise”taken part in sexual misbehavior towards a minor patient “and is on lifetime parole. The Board of Chiropractors temporarily suspended his license in 2008 and his license was withdrawed in 2010. The board discovered he had tried to fulfill kids on the web for sex, kept child pornography and continued to see clients younger than 18 unsupervised, according to the choice removing him of his license.
The board denied Bajakian's request to have his license reinstated in 2018, but they voted unanimously on Oct. 24, 2019, to provide the license back, Grewal said.
Bajakian went to jail once again in 2016 on a parole infraction and was released from Southern State Correctional Facility in 2017, according to prison records.
Bajakian is noted as a signed up sex culprit in Florida, where the site states “sex offense, other state (2 counts attempting to entice or entice a kid).”
After the reinstatement decision on Thursday, Vitale and
Singer excoriated the board's choice.”This is a decision that defies common sense and overlooks the security of the general public the board is responsible for protecting. Anybody who thinks it's a great concept to restore the license of a founded guilty sex offender who victimized kids can't be trusted to exercise their oversight duties, or to even to hearken their own mission declaration directing the board to ‘secure the health, safety and welfare of the people of New Jersey,'” they said. “Bryan Bajakian is a predator who ought to not be placed in a position of trust with clients in health care settings that make them vulnerable, particularly kids. Rejecting him a license should be automatic, as it remains in other states.”
