Reporting requirement for criminal convictions
You must inform the department in writing within 30 days after pleading guilty or nolo contendere to, or being convicted or found guilty of, any felony or a crime punishable by imprisonment of 1 year or more under the law of the United States or of any state thereof, or under the law of any other country without regard to whether a judgment of conviction has been entered by the court having jurisdiction of the case. See: 626.451(7), F.S.
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
