Massachusetts Criminal Problem for License Professional
If you are a licensed professional convicted of a crime in Massachusetts, it may lead to disciplinary actions against you. The charge in which you are convicted does not need to be directly related to your practice or professional license. If you are convicted of a Massachusetts felony, the chances of you being disciplined by the licensing board dramatically increases.
It is also important that you understand that each professional licensing board has its own regulations and authority to deal with criminal charges. Before you resolve your criminal charges, it is important that you know how your professional board deals with certain charges. If any professional board is trying to discipline you, the board will usually provide you with:
- Adequate notice of the proceeding
- Right to hear and examine the evidence offered against you and the opportunity to cross examine witnesses offering testimony
- Right to introduce evidence supporting your position
- A full and fair hearing
- The right to have an attorney to assist you during the hearing
If you have a professional hearing, it is important that you have a lawyer on your side. The lawyer that you have assisting you in the process needs to be sensitive to your licensing issue.
