LANSING, Mich. (WZZM) - A Berrien Springs man pleaded guilty Tuesday to practicing medicine without a valid license and committing sexual assaults.
Charles A. Mosimbwa, 43, admitted to forging documents to the State of Michigan to obtain licences to practice medicine as a doctor and as a registered nurse. He operated an office on Main Street in Niles, Michigan, and before that worked out of his apartment in Berrien Springs.
Mosimbwa was arrested in March and Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette's office interviewed patients of Mosimbwa and found incidents of sexual assaults taking place. Those charges were then added to the list of crimes.
Mosimbwa pleaded guilty in Ingham County's 30th Circuit Court to one count of CSC, 1st degree, two counts of Medicaid Fraud-False Claim, one count of False Pretenses, and one count of Health Profession - Unauthorized Practice.
According to Schuette, the victims requested the plea deal be made to avoid a lengthy trial. He will likely be sentenced to 5 to 20 years in prison on October 24th. Mosimbwa is a citizen of Malawi, Africa and will likely be deported after his prison sentence is served.
Schuette encourages patients of Mosimbwa who wish to report concerns to call the Attorney General's Health Care Fraud Division at 1-800-242-2873.
