Failing to self-report such a criminal disposition could result in discipline being taken against your license even if the underlying criminal offense is not of a nature that would warrant discipline.
How you report this information to the Board is essential to protecting your license. Many criminal offenses are not of a nature that would justify discipline against your license.
