Vehicle and Traffic law section 1192-3, a misdemeanor.

The professional misconduct yielded the following penalty: censure and reprimand, five (5) years of probation, subject to terms set forth in the Order; and a $10,000 fine.

Dr. Corasanti had his authorization to treat injured workers temporarily suspended by the Board on January 7, 2013.
