State imposes discipline on local licensees
SPRINGFIELD — Four Champaign-Urbana professionals have been disciplined by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. They include:
— Carmen Sims of Urbana, whose cosmetologist license was automatically and indefinitely suspended on July 24 due to a violation of probation. Her license had been suspended and she had been placed on probation in 2010 because of a felony conviction and unprofessional conduct, according to the department.
— Ashley Winfrey of Champaign, whose cosmetologist license was placed on probation without monitoring on July 9 because of a criminal conviction. Her discipline will end on July 9, 2013.
— Joseph Dambrauskas of Champaign, whose physician and surgeon license was indefinitely suspended for a minimum of 18 months on July 10 after he was disciplined by the New York State Board of Professional Medical Conduct.
— John J. Hayes of Champaign, whose real estate broker license was revoked on July 20 for failure to comply with the terms of a disciplinary order issued by the department. Earlier this year Hayes was fined and placed on probation for failing to timely refund fees and provide copies of documents, and for inadvertently listing a property for which he did not have a listing agreement.
