A Manhattan doctor will get to present evidence in an effort to keep his license.
The radiation oncologist was convicted of aggravated battery in April for an altercation at the home of his ex-wife, involving K-State business professor David Lehman. Lehman suffered a cut to the head and a brain injury. Reitz is due to be sentenced June 29th.
State statute says anyone convicted of a felony will have their license revoked, unless a two-thirds majority of the board finds the licensee will not pose a threat to the public.
Reitz' attorney argued Friday that Reitz technically hasn't been convicted yet, so the case should be dismissed.
Lehman was in Topeka for the hearing. He says he still suffers memory loss and periodic stuttering as a result of the assault. He says he believes Reitz is dangerous and should not be allowed to keep his license.
A hearing date is not set yet.
