Georgia board licenses doctors other states won't

 Twelve years ago, Dr. Armando Sanchez pleaded no contest to solicitation of capital murder after he was accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill a disgruntled patient in Houston.
The medical board in his home state of Texas took away his license and refused to reconsider. The board in California, where he also held a license, did the same.
But in Georgia, the disgraced doctor found a board willing to give him a second chance.
For decades, physicians whose misconduct caused other states to reject them have been given the green light to practice in Georgia, typically through decisions made largely behind closed doors, an Atlanta Journal-Constitution investigation found.
