“Dr. Terpstra expects to be exonerated in [the criminal] matter, and if so, that affects what could happen here [at the licensing hearing],” Farlow said.
The medical board decision to postpone the hearing indefinitely, while Terpstra’s criminal case is pending, also likely means the board will delay hearing licensing complaints against Brewer and the Wagoners.
Brewer is scheduled to go before the medical board next month, and both Wagoners are scheduled for the board’s June meeting.
“If a motion is made [to continue the license hearings] the medical board would consider it, the same way they considered it today,” said Jessica Krug, an attorney with the attorney general’s office.
