BOARD OF PROFESSIONAL GEOLOGISTS
Reporting requirement for criminal convictions
As of October 1, 2009, Section 455.227(1)(t), Florida Statutes requires all professional licensees to report to the department within 30 days of being convicted or found guilty of, or having plead nolo contendere or guilty to a crime in any jurisdiction. The statute also requires the reporting of any convictions that occurred prior to October 1, 2009. A licensee who fails to report that information may be subject to disciplinary action, including fines, suspension or license revocation. To report this information, complete the criminal self-reporting document and mail it to the department.
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. If you would like help with preparing your self-report of a criminal offense, contact Delegal Law Offices, P.A. today by calling (904) 633-5000 or visiting www.protectingcareers.com
