He is currently on administrative leave according to Lori Williams, a spokesperson at Baylor College.

Officials state Lin was arrested on Wednesday, July 31 and is currently facing a charge of online solicitation of a minor, which is a second-degree felony.





At this time the Texas Medical Board has temporarily suspended Lin’s medical license after ruling “determining his continuation in the practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare,” according to a statement from the board.

The suspension went into immediate effect as of Monday and will remain in place until the Texas Medical Board takes any further action.

Lin is currently in the Montgomery County Jail in lieu of a $30,000 bond.
