Psychiatrist James B. Hanley's receives maximum penalty of license revocation
April 1, 2007
In early April 2007, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Brunswick (Canada) suspended psychiatrist James B. Hanley's license, pending an investigation. Dr. Hanley had his license to practice in province of Newfoundland revoked in March 2007, after he admitted having sex with a depressed patient beginning in fall of 2003 (though Hanley had treated the patient for 17 years for abuse and consequent depression). Dr. Hanley closed his Newfoundland practice and began practicing at a New Brunswick military base, despite a six-page agreed statement of facts (a legal document agreements between a physician and the medical board) in which he agreed that he would not. He faces the maximum penalty of revocation of his New Brunswick license.
