The growing controversy surrounding Nadya Suleman's fertility doctor, Dr. Michael Kamrava , has raised questions whether the embattled doc could go to jail for his role in octo-mom's pregnancies. Royal Oakes, a legal expert exclusively tells RadarOnline.com that while the California State Medical Board is investigating Dr. Kamrava for any violations that could possibly result in having his medical license revoked, it appears UNLIKELY that he could face criminal charges, "There does not appear to be any basis for bringing criminal charges against the physician. The idea of his conduct falling below the standard of care is not a criminal matter. It's a matter of regulating the medical profession. The California State Medical Board must decide what action to take if any."

Oakes also tells RadarOnline.com that Octo-mom is fueling the fire surrounding Dr. Kamrava by divulging details to the media surrounding how she became pregnant.

"The mother going public with her story is really the worst thing that could happen to the doctor. The more she talks the more the world thinks that what he did in implanting the embroyos was a bad idea. It may not be a crime what he did but its dangerous and should be illegal."

"This controversy is bound to generate efforts among state legislators to enact stricter and clearer conduct for prospective parent and doctors. The difficulty reformers are going to run into when the hoopla dies down about this particular case, we should be careful about the government poking its nose in people's business. Does the government have the right to decide how many children should they be allowed, financially able to have children?" Oakes says.
