Grand Rapids - Investigators say a child psychiatrist faces criminal sexual conduct charges for acts committed with an adolescent. Kent County Sheriff's deputies say Dr. Carlos Marcano, 58, was arrested on Monday. Marcano is a staff psychiatrist at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services, but investigators say Marcano's crimes did not involve any patients, nor did they take place on Pine Rest property. Pine Rest marketing director Pam Mettler released a statement today, saying, "Pine Rest has been informed by the Kent County Sheriff's Department that Dr. Carlos Marcano was arrested on charges of criminal sexual conduct. We have been informed by the sheriff's department that this matter did not involve any Pine Rest patients and did not arise from the performance of any duties at Pine Rest. Dr. Marcano has been placed on administrative leave pending investigation." Marcano also works under contract for Community Mental Health of Central Michigan. The group says it has suspended Marcano's contract indefinitely.
