BRUCE LANGLOIS CRIMINAL TRIAL SET FOR MARCH 5; If Convicted, Langlois Facing Up To Five Years In Jail

BREAKING NEWS Bruce Langlois, a registered sex offender and former Lowell, Michigan veterinarian who lost his license in 2015 for negligence, incompetence and “lack of good moral character’’, will finally face a criminal trial in Huron County Circuit Court on March 5, 2019. (The trial was delayed while an appeal made its way through the Michigan Court of Appeals and Supreme Court.) 

The upcoming trial stems from charges filed nearly two years ago by then-Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette. Langlois was charged on March 1, 2017 with three felony counts of Unauthorized Practice of Veterinary Medicine for allegedly presenting himself as a licensed veterinarian and practicing veterinary medicine with a suspended veterinary license. 

Each charge is punishable by up to five years in jail and/or a fine of $5,000. Langlois was also charged as a “Habitual Offender 3rd Offense” as a result of his two Criminal Sexual Conduct 4th Degree convictions (1988 and 1995).

In cases prosecuted by the State of Michigan (either by the Attorney General or County Prosecutor), persons convicted of a felony, an attempted felony, or a high court misdemeanor offense may be subject to habitual sentencing when the person has at least one prior conviction for a felony, attempted, felony of high court misdemeanor. 

Habitual offender sentencing may result in a higher maximum possible sentence, a higher sentencing guideline range, and in some cases, a mandatory minimum sentence.
