Potential Consequences of Criminal Charges
Teachers and nurses are in positions of trust. Teachers are given the task of caring for children and nurses must care for their patients. For this reason, certain criminal convictions will lead to a revocation of a nursing or teaching license, including:
- Child abuse
- Sexual exploitation of a minor
- Fraud or embezzlement
- Gun and weapons charges
- Drug offenses
- Assault and domestic violence
If you are convicted, a judge will ask you if you are a licensed teacher or nurse. At this time, you will need to fill out a form, notifying the state of your conviction. This form notifies the Arizona Department of Education or Arizona State Board of Nursing of your conviction. The licensing agency will then determine if your license will be revoked.
Protecting Your Teaching or Nursing License
You do not have to complete the form until after they have gone through the criminal process. Attorney Jamal F. Allen will fight your charges and aggressively defend your license from day one. The best way to avoid losing your license is to have your criminal charges dismissed. If this is not possible, attorney Allen will negotiate for lesser charges to avoid license revocation.
