A 45-year-old dentist charged inHelenafor a sex crime is now on probation with the state Board of Dentistry for not being forthcoming on his renewal about the charge and for being convicted of a charge involving violence.

Jason James Roan, who currently lives inBillings, initially charged with sexual intercourse without consent, entered an Alford plea on a lesser charge of felony criminal endangerment. Roan received a three-year deferred sentence after admitting to creating a substantial risk of serious bodily injury to his victim.

After the charges were filed in April 2010, Roan renewed his dentistry license. On the paperwork, he answered no to a question asking if any legal or disciplinary actions had been instituted against him since his last renewal, according to documents released by the Board of Dentistry on Wednesday.

The board ordered Roan’s license be placed on probation for three years with quarterly updates from his state probation officer, employment-supervising dentist and psychotherapist. He also was fined $4,000 and must be supervised while working.

According to the order, Roan must continue counseling in order to “address specific issues or concerns” raised by his psychotherapist.

If Roan violates his dental probation, his license could be suspended or revoked.
