Secretary of State Jeffrey Bullock has ordered the temporary suspension of the Delaware Certified Massage Technician license of Dazhong Wang of Smyrna following his arrest on charges of promoting prostitution and permitting prostitution at the Rehoboth establishment he owns where employees were arrested in December.
In making his determination, Secretary Bullock considered the criminal charges by the Delaware State Police for authorizing the temporary suspension of the professional license of Mr. Wang.
The Delaware Code Titles 23 and 24 were amended on April 15, 2014, to enable a temporary suspension pending a hearing to be issued upon the written order of the Secretary of State with the concurrence of the Board chair if the activity of the licensee presents a clear and immediate danger to the public health, safety or welfare.
As a result of the actions taken today, the suspension of Mr. Wang will remain in effect for a period of 60 days during which time disciplinary hearings will be held or the final disposition for this individual will take place. As the result of a hearing, the Board of Massage and Bodywork has the authority to impose disciplinary sanctions up to and including revocation of a practitioner’s license or certification. The State has asked for revocation of Mr. Wang’s license.
