Southport, Indiana Mayor Rob Thoman
Frankly, I do not know why they continue to license this fellow since he has been untruthful since day one.
The Indiana Dental Board voted unanimously Friday to fine Southport Mayor Rob Thoman, though he will retain his license to practice dentistry.This action by the Indiana dental board was a slap on the wrist and the good Mayor was lucky that he didn't have his dental license revoked.
As part of a settlement agreement, Thoman's license will be on probation for a year.
Thoman will have to pay a $2,000 fine and perform 40 hours of community service, 6News' Rafael Sanchez reported.
The state alleged that Thoman failed to disclose required information on his dental renewal license.
Two board members recused themselves from the Thoman case.
Thoman didn't disclose on his 1987 application that he had pleaded no contest to felony embezzlement charges relating to school funds in 1981, the Indiana attorney general's office alleged. At that time, Thoman was student body president at Colorado State University.
The complaint filed with the Board of Dentistry also claimed that on a question asking about military service, Thoman answered "not applicable."
The state said Thoman served in the U.S. Army as an operating room specialist from 1977 to 1980 and that he "separated from the service under other than honorable conditions; administrative discharge conduct triable by court martial."
