The state has stripped the medical and surgical license of Dr. Charles Alderdice of St. Joseph. He was convicted last October of a misdemeanor charge of Controlled Substance False Prescription for charging the insurance of a patient's ex-wife for inhalers. Alderdice was sentenced to pay $485 in fees and costs or spend a month in jail. The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs announced the suspension today, and took the action last Thursday. The state Public Health Code requires the mandatory suspension of a doctor or nurse's license if they're convicted of a felony, a misdemeanor that carries a maximum two-year sentence or a controlled substance-related conviction.
