A Shelby Township doctor has had his license suspended after being convicted of two counts of health care conspiracy.

Paul Marius Petre was convicted Jan. 7 in United States District Court of health care fraud conspiracy and conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, both felonies, according to a release from the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

He was sentenced to 36 months in prison to be followed by 36 months of supervised release. He also was ordered to pay $950,000 in restitution with his co-defendants and a $200 assessment.

Petre’s license was suspended Feb. 11 by LARA under state law which allows for the action once someone is found guilty of a felony, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for up to two years or a controlled substance-related conviction.
