Public record: EMT loses license after arson and DWI

Posted by: Jane Friedmann under Whistleblower, Whistleblowers Updated: January 13, 2010 - 5:22 PM

The license of a Brown County Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-B), Kari Reinhart, was revoked after she was convicted in May 2009 of arson and Driving While Impaired (DWI).

In an order made public last week, the Minnesota Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board cited the following convictions as factors in its decision:
Reinhart engaged in misdemeanor DWI on July 23, 2008. She was sentenced in Brown County District Court to two years probation and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine, with $600 stayed.
She also committed felony first-degree arson of a dwelling and gross misdemeanor DWI on October 24, 2008, the court ruled. Reinhart is currently serving a 783 day sentence and was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine plus $118,589.72 in restitution.
The board stated that though Reinhart is currently incarcerated, she may apply for re-certification once all terms of her criminal probation are met.
